Nowadays advanced magnetic tunnel junction applications demand very high tunnel magnetoresistance at room temperature, thus it is quite important to explore high Curie temperature Tc half-metallic Heusler alloys. In this article rst-principles calculation unveiled that NiCrMnSi has Tc of 1200 K comparable to that of the traditional Co2MnSi Heusler alloys, even though it does not contain Co element. In addition, we examined whether NiCrMnSi Heulser phase lms can be obtained by a magnetron sputtering on MgO substrates. The results of the structural analysis and rst-principles calculations indicated that NiCrMnSi Heusler phase is metastable. A possible route to obtain metastable NiCrMnSi Heusler alloy is to utilize appropriate templates.
