Research Highlights

  • The Ni-Mn-Ga ferromagnetic shape memory alloys have been developed by the group of V. A. Chernenko in the late of 80th which led to the discovery of magnetic shape memory effect (MSME) resulting in establishment of new interdisciplinary research field in the smart materials exhibiting martensitic transformation. Several new phenomena, such as (i) magnetic-field-induced superelasticity; (ii) twinning-strain-induced change of the magnetization in the ferromagnetic martensites, (iii) new postcritical state exhibiting a non-hysteretic giant superelasticity and (iv) martensite rejuvenation have been found in magnetic shape memory alloys (MSMAs) experimentally and explained theoretically.
