In this chapter, structures and physical properties of functional intermetallics of technological interest or at least with potential for applications are discussed. Technologically most important so far are lanthanoid-based ferromagnetic materials, cP8-Cr3Si (A15) type superconductors and shape memory alloys. Interesting properties also show some of the Laves phases as well as the Heusler and half-Heusler phases. Examples are the magnetostrictive materials Terfenol D or Invar, which shows almost zero thermal expansion, on the one hand, and magnetocaloric and thermoelectric materials on the other hand. (Half-)Heusler phases are also of interest for applications in spintronics. The structure/property relationships of all these and many more functional materials are discussed.

Keywords:   physical properties, structure/property relationships, functional, intermetallics, ferromagnetic materials, magnetostrictive materials, magnetocaloric materials, thermoelectric materials, shape memory alloys, superconducting materials
