On ring shaped Fe85Ga15 samples the hysteresis loops and magnetostriction were measured. The samples were annealed at T = 980 ??C for 100 h and cooled from annealing temperature in two different ways: one was slowly cooled (sample SC) and the other one was quenched into the water (sample Q). XRD results showed a strong texture in these samples, which is dependent on the cooling process. The anisotropy energy and the magnetostriction of the samples were calculated based on these determined textures. These results agree qualitatively with magnetization and magnetostriction experiments and support the thermal history influence on the magnetostriction values.
