Hot extrusion process was applied to Ni54.3Fe16.2Ga29.5 polycrystalline alloy. Then the rod was annealed subsequently for 1 h at 700, 800, 900, and 1100°C. In this paper the effect of annealing on the microstructure of the polycrystalline extruded Ni-Fe-Ga alloy were analyzed. The structure of the alloys was determined by the X-ray and transmission electron microscopy. The electron backscattering diffraction technique was applied to obtain the texture of the extruded rods after heat treatment.
