We report on low twinning stress of 0.2 MPa for type 1 twin boundaries with rational (101) twinning
plane and 0.1 MPa for type 2 twin boundaries with rational [-101] twinning direction, in Ni2MnGa0.8Fe0.2
seven-layer modulated martensite exhibiting about 12% stress-induced strain. The studied samples were
free of compound twins with (100) and (110) twinning planes. The martensite lattice is monoclinic and
shows a long-period commensurate modulation with wave vector q = (2/7) g110 , where g110 is the reciprocal
lattice vector. The investigated alloy has high potential for practical applications due to the low twinning
stress and the elevated Curie point TC = 400 K.
