Title: Magnetic and transport properties of as-prepared Mn2CoGa

Abstract

Magnetic and transport properties of as-prepared Mn2CoGa polycrystalline Heusler alloy were investigated. Results of magnetic measurements were found to agree well with literature data, i.e., the studied Mn2CoGa is a ferrimagnet with magnetic moment of 2.03 μB/f.u. and a high Curie temperature TC = 728 K. Measurements of transport properties revealed that electrical resistivity rho of Mn2CoGa is anomalously large (~250 μΩ.cm at room temperature) and demonstrates a complex temperature dependence. Specifically, in the measured temperature interval from 80 K to 375 K, the electrical resistivity is proportional to T2 up to T ~200 K while at higher temperatures rho can be fitted by rho(T) = A + B.exp(-CT) expression. These changes in the scattering mechanisms are accompanied by a change of the magnetoresistance sign from positive at T below ~200 K to negative at higher temperatures.
