Magnetic, magnetooptical and magnetotransport properties of Co50.3Fe20.3Ti5.6Ga23.8 thin films were studied for the as prepared as well as annealed samples. Measurements of transverse magnetooptical Kerr effect revealed that the spectral response of the films strongly depends on the structural ordering which can be manipulated by annealing conditions. Peculiarities in the magnetic properties of the films were attributed to the coexisting phases with different degree of structural disorder. Magnetoresistance of Co50.3Fe20.3Ti5.6Ga23.8 thin films was found to be linear in the fields above 1 T which is typical for half-Heusler systems as well as for Heusler-based ferromagnetic shape memory alloys.
