Article

Distinctive features of plastic deformation of a magnetic Ni2MnGa alloy are studied by the method of local dosed deformation. It is found that the martensite phase of an Ni2MnGa single crystals is susceptible to mechanical twinning. Here twins represent thin lenses formed away from the imprint of the indenter.
