Goodfellow is delighted to announce the addition of an exciting new product to our range – Magnetic Shape Memory Material. This patented NiMnGa single crystal material has some extremely innovative properties:



NiMnGa single Crystal

Elongation in Magnetic Field

Up to 6%, typically 3 to 5%


Up to 1 to 2 kHz

Force Density

About 2 MPa

Work Output (force x stroke)

Max 100 kJ/m3

Fatigue Life

Several hundred million cycles

Magnetic Field


Upper Temperature Limit

Transformation martensite to austenite 70°C
