dc.description.abstract <p>Extraordinary magnetostrictive behavior has been observed in Fe-Ga alloys with concentrations of Ga between 4% and 27%. <em>λ</em><sub>100</sub> exhibits two peaks as a function of Ga content. At room temperature, <em>λ</em><sub>100</sub> reaches a maximum of 265 ppm near 19% Ga and 235 ppm near 27% Ga. For compositions between 19% and 27%, <em>λ</em><sub>100</sub> drops sharply to a minimum near 24% Ga and exhibits an anomalous temperature dependence, decreasing by as much as a factor of 2 at low temperatures. This unusual magnetostrictive behavior is interpreted on the basis of a single maximum in the magnetoelastic coupling ∣<em>b</em><sub>1</sub>∣ of Fe with increasing amounts of nonmagnetic Ga, combined with a strongly temperature dependent elastic shear modulus (<em>c</em><sub>11</sub>−<em>c</em><sub>12</sub>) which approaches zero near 27% Ga. <em>λ</em><sub>111</sub> is significantly smaller in magnitude than <em>λ</em><sub>100</sub> over this composition range, and has an abrupt change in sign from negative for low Ga concentrations to positive for a concentration of Ga near 21%.</p>
