In this study, the magnetic properties of both Cu85.41Al9.97Mn4.62 and Cu82.41Mn13.81Al3.78 (wt%) shape memory alloys were studied. The analysis of the magnetization as a function of applied field and temperature was conducted between ?10 to 10 T magnetic field ranges at constant temperature. Two alloys were examined using ac magnetic susceptibility measurements. The magnetic saturation values at room temperature were found to be approximately 1 and 70 emu/g for Cu85.41Al9.97Mn4.62 (wt%) and Cu82.41Mn13.81Al3.78 (wt%) alloys, respectively. The magnetic saturation and the coercivity values for the CuAlMn alloy are found smaller than those for the CuMnAl alloy. Moreover, from the magnetization curves, the typical ferromagnetic behavior were observed for both alloys. Details of the morphological properties and chemical composition have been examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), respectively. © 2016, Springer Science+Business Media New York.
