The linear thermal expansion coefficients (LTEC) of semimetallic Fe2MAl (M = Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, and Ni) alloys have been measured in the temperature range 80–900 K. The magnetic-fluctuation contribution to LTEC αm, sf(T) = αm(T) + αsf(T) consisting of negative “Stoner” αm(T) and positive “spin-fluctuation” αsf(T) contributions. The αm(T) contribution is assumed to be proportional to the square of the spontaneous magnetization. The αsf(T) contribution, as is the case in paramagnetic and ferromagnetic states, is due to the effects of inducing local magnetic moments by spin fluctuations.
