Title: High energy ball milling study of Fe{sub 2}MnSn Heusler alloy

The structural and magnetic properties of as-melted and high energy ball milled alloy samples have been studied by X-ray diffraction, DC magnetization and electronic structure calculations by means of density functional theory. The observed properties are compared to that of the bulk sample. There is a very good enhancement of saturation magnetization and coercivity in the nano-sized samples as compared to bulk which is explained in terms of structural disordering and size effect.
