The phase equilibria, A2/B2 and B2/L21 (or D03) order-disorder transitions and martensitic transformation on the Ni-Fe side of the Ni-Fe-Ga system were examined by electron probe microanalysis (EPMA) and differential scanning calorimetric (DSC) measurement. The equilibrium compositions of interrelations mainly among the α (A2), β (B2), β′ (L21 or D03), γ (A1) and γ′ (L12) phases were determined using diffusion triples which were fabricated by two-step diffusion coupling. It was confirmed that a bcc single-phase region composed of α, β and β′ at 850-1000 °C exists in a wide composition range and that the critical temperature of the B2/L21 order-disorder transformation in the Fe3Ga-Ni3Ga pseudo-binary section gradually increases with increasing Ni content. The existing composition region of the martensite phase at room temperature was also determined by the diffusion triple method.
