Paper Title:
Structural and Magnetic Transitions in Rapidly Solidified Heusler Alloys Ribbons
  Abstract

The most extensively studied Heusler alloys are those based on the Ni-Mn-Ga system. However, to overcome the high cost of Gallium and the usually low martensitic transformation temperature, the search for Ga-free alloys has been recently attempted, particularly, by introducing In, Sn or Sb. In this work, Mn50Ni40In10, Mn50Ni34In16, Ni50Mn36-xIn14+x (x = 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5) and Ni50Mn37Sn13 ribbons has been obtained by melt spinning. We outline their structural and thermomagnetic behavior. Columnar grains and preferential orientation has been obtained. The martensitic, Tm, and the Curie, TC, temperatures of the ribbons are lower than those of the bulk samples with similar compositions. This effect is probably due to the ribbons small and constrained grains. For it, a large under-cooling is necessary for the martensitic transformation. The decrease of TC in the ribbons could be associated with the increased degree of quenched-in short-range disorder around defects.
