Abstract: The results of a study of the physical properties of polycrystalline Ni2.19Fe0.04Mn0.77Ga alloy in initial cast state, after severe plastic deformation by torsion under pressure and after annealing of deformed material at temperatures of 400C, 500C, 600C and 700C are present. Record the temperature dependence of the magnetization and electrical resistivity in the initial cast alloy shows that the temperature intervals of the martensitic and magnetic transitions overlap. According to the study of the microstructure of the alloy in different structural states, the dependence of the average grain size of the recrystallized structure in the sample from the degree of annealing is established. It is shown that the martensitic structure of the material is observed only after annealing of the deformed alloy at 500C. As a result of severe plastic deformation of the investigated alloy the ferromagnetic ordering is destroyed and the martensitic transformation is suppressed. Subsequent heat treatment of deformed alloy leads to a gradual recovery of ferromagnetic order.
