Abstract

The purpose of this investigation is to determine whether ferromagnetic alloys exist in the ternary sys­tem Cu-Mn-Zn analogous to the other Heusler alloys. The work in this thesis is a preliminary investi­gation on these alloys using a common metallographic re­search technique and augmented with X-ray methods.
