abstract The magnetic properties tuning and volume dependence in the series of quaternary full Heusler alloys with formula Co2Cr1-xYxGa (Y= Ti, V, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni) were studied with a detailed first-principles exploration. We employ the density functional KKR method with the coherent potential approximation, estimating effective Heisenberg exchange constants via the magnetic force theorem together with mean-field Curie temperature (T-C) and magnetic moment for compositions in the whole concentration range. The volumetric dependency of these magnetic properties is studied, particularly the pressure derivatives of T-C at equilibrium. Our ternary alloy calculations show good agreement with local-density and generalized gradient approximations in the literature. The quaternary alloys show a wide range of tunable magnetic properties, where magnetic moments range from 0.8 to 4.9 mu B, T-C from 130 K to 1250 K, and dTC/dV values range from -7 to + 6.3 K angstrom(-3).
