Up to now most of the research on Ni-Mn-Ga alloys was concentrated on single crystals. However, there is a great interest in polycrystals for technical applications. Recently, polycrystalline Ni50Mn29Ga21 rods of 25 mm diameter and 400 mm length were prepared by hot extrusion. The <100> <110> double fibre texture of the extruded rods was measured with high-energy synchrotron radiation. The microstructure after hot extrusion was analyzed with electron backscatter diffraction. Within the recrystallized grains all three martensitic variants have developed during cooling. Variants with twin boundaries preferentially aligned along the extrusion direction predominate.
