Experimentally, in the range of 300-700 K, the temperature dependences of secondary ion emission (SIE) for iron-nickel alloys with nickel content of 30.2 % and 36 % are studied by secondary ion mass spectrometry. The observable changes in SIE for iron and nickel ions in the neighborhood of the Curie point are due to magnetic transition, which we hold to be a first-order phase transition. The influence of carbon contained in the alloys manifests itself in the form of SIE peaks at 530-630 K.
