Martensitic, magnetic transformations, and crystal structures in Pd-In-Fe alloys were investigated. It was confirmed that some Pd-In-Fe alloys show martensitic transformation from a Heusler-type (L 21) ordered bcc phase to a 2M -type (D O22) structure and that an almost perfect superelastic effect accompany the transformation can be obtained. Furthermore, some alloys show transformation from the paramagnetic parent phase to the ferromagnetic martensite phase.
