ABSTRACT

Results of investigation of the temperature dependence of magnetization of Ni2.08Mn0.96Ga0.96 alloy in the magnetic fields of various intensities are reported. An abrupt change in magnetization at transformation of low temperature phase to the high temperature one is observed. Magnetization increases during the phase transition in the magnetic field having intensity below 500 kA/m and decreases at higher intensities. The explanation is based on zigzag configuration of domains in twinned structure. In the Curie temperature region the ferromagnetic ? paramagnetic phase transition occurs sharply at low field strength, while at higher field strength the transition is smooth. It is concluded that the increase in flatness of the curve σ = f (T) and the increase of ferromagnetic state destruction temperature with increase of the intensity of the magnetic field is indicative of the main role of Mn in magnetization of the alloy.
