ThyssenKrupp Electrical Steel GmbH, D-45881 Gelsenkirchen, Germany(Dated: April 8, 2008)We have studied the effect of Fe addition on the structural and magnetic transitions in themagnetic shape memory alloy Ni-Mn-Ga by substituting systematically each atomic species byFe. Calorimetric and AC susceptibility measurements have been carried out in order to study themagnetic and structural transformation properties. We find that the addition of Fe modifies thestructural and magnetic transformation…
