The ferromagnetic Heusler alloy Ni2FeGa was synthesized using the melt-spinning technique. The alloy exhibited a thermoelastic martensitic transformation from cubic to orthorhombic structure at 142 K and a premartensitic transformation. The textured samples showed a completely recoverable two-way shape memory effect with a strain of 0.3% upon the thermoelastic martensitic transformation.
