In science:

The field-induced reorientation of the easy magnetization direction is accompanied with more than 4% of sample’s dimension change.
Large Magnetic-Field-Induced Strains in Ni-Mn-Ga Alloys due to Redistribution of Martensite Variants
The change of compression direction from B to A and vice versa results in reversible reorientation of the martensitic texture.
Large Magnetic-Field-Induced Strains in Ni-Mn-Ga Alloys due to Redistribution of Martensite Variants
Consequently, it is evident that under the influence of the magnetic field within the interval of 0.3-0.5 T one can observe the easy axis reorientation from the perpendicular to parallel to the field direction.
Large Magnetic-Field-Induced Strains in Ni-Mn-Ga Alloys due to Redistribution of Martensite Variants
The above-mentioned reorientation of the easy axis is caused by the redistribution of the martensite variants proportions under the applied magnetic field and would lead to macroscopic deformation of the sample.
Large Magnetic-Field-Induced Strains in Ni-Mn-Ga Alloys due to Redistribution of Martensite Variants
The martensite structure reorientation occurs only between two sample directions, the third one remains the axis of hard magnetization. 3.
