A technique for direct experimental investigations of coupling between applied elastic stress and magnetic response in ferromagnetic shape memory alloys over the temperature ranges of paramagnetic to ferromagnetic and martensitic transformations has been developed, based on the inverse magnetostriction (Villary) effect. Primary characteristics available from the experiment are elastic and anelastic properties and, the most important, signal related to stress-induced magnetization.

    This paper deals with the microstructure and plastic deformation of Ni50Mn29Ga21 ferromagnetic shape memory alloys. In contrast to conventional shape memory alloys, plastic deformation in the martensitic phase, which is due to twin boundary motion, may be caused not only by mechanical stress but...
