Abstract
Ni-Mn-Ga alloys possess thermoelastic martensitic transformation and ferromagnetic transition. Despite the giant magnetic-field-induced strain and stress-induced martensitic transformation developed in Ni-Mn-Ga alloys, however, little information is obtained about optical properties of Ni-Mn-Ga alloys as candidate materials in digital information storage. In this study, the optical reflectivity of Ni-Mn-Ga alloys in martensite and austenite phases has been investigated. The results reveal that the maximum reflectivity difference between the martensite and austenite phases is about 24%, indicating the promising application in phase-transition information storage. The calculated DOS shows that the effect of martensitic transformation on optical properties is attributed to the change of Ni 3d partial DOS between the austenite and martensite phases.
