We report the growth and characterization of Co2FeAl nanowires. Nanowires are grown using electrospinning method and the diameters range from 50 to 500 nm. These nanowires exhibit cubic crystal structure with a lattice constant of a - 5.639 angstrom. The nanowires exhibit ferromagnetic behavior with a very high Curie temperature. The temperature dependent magnetization behavior displays an anomaly in the temperature range 600-850 K, which disappears at higher external magnetic fields. (C) 2012 American Institute of Physics.
