It is shown that during periodic deformation of martensitic Ni2MnGa single crystalline alloy jerky magnetic noises are emitted. Above a threshold limit in the deformation amplitude, the noise energy per deformation cycle showed increasing tendency with increasing deformation. Energy and amplitude probability distributions of the noise were characterized by power law functions. The energy exponents were independent of the deformation amplitude in the investigated range. The decrease of the noise energy as well as power exponents with increasing magnetic field was interpreted by the decrease of the multiplicity of the martensite variants.
