Heusler alloy

Heusler alloy
/hyoohs"leuhr/; Ger. /hoys"leuhrdd/
any of various alloys of manganese and other nonferromagnetic metals that exhibit ferromagnetism.
[named after Conrad Heusler, 19th-century German mining engineer and chemist]

* * *

      any of the first magnetic alloys composed of metals that, in their pure state, are not magnetic. The alloys are named after Fritz Heusler, 19th-century German mining engineer and chemist. Heusler alloys consist of approximately two parts of copper, one of manganese, and one of tin. The tin may be replaced by aluminum, arsenic, antimony, bismuth, or boron; the copper may be replaced by silver.
