    Please pay attention to the following instructions:

    • Do not heat the sample above 45 °C.1
    • Do not apply stresses above 5 MPa to the material1
    • Do not bend, or otherwise apply non-uniform stresses, to the material.1
    • Do not apply field or stress on the surface marked as “D” above.1
    • Apply uniform magnetic field in the direction perpendicular to the surface indicated with a blue dot.
    • We recommend recording the mechanical, thermal and magnetic history of each sample.

    1The material will not be destroyed, however it might change its twin structure. This can be easily restored by trained personnel.
