Ni50Mn50-xGax/2Inx/2 magnetic shape memory alloys were systematically prepared, and the magnetic properties as well as the phase diagram, including atomic ordering, martensitic and magnetic transitions, were investigated. The B2–L21 order–disorder transformation showed a parabolic-like curve against the Ga+In composition. The martensitic transformation temperature was found to decrease with increasing Ga+In composition and to slightly bend downwards below the Curie temperature of the parent phase. Spontaneous magnetization was investigated for both parent and martensite alloys. The magnetism of martensite phase was found to show glassy magnetic behaviors by thermomagnetization and AC susceptibility measurements.
