The present paper is dealing with the experimental study of the influence of Fe substitution on the Curie temperature and spin polarization in Co₂CrAl Heusler alloys. A recently successfully introduced new rapid quenching method has been used for the preparation of Co₂CrAl and Co₂Cr_{0.6}Fe_{0.4}Al ribbon samples. The Curie temperatures have been determined from magnetization measurements being 378 K for Co₂CrAl and much above 400 K for Co₂Cr_{0.6}Fe_{0.4}Al. The spin polarization parameter P₀ of the studied samples has been estimated from point-contact Andreev reflexion spectroscopy measurements. In pure Co₂CrAlP₀ = 0.5 - 0.9, and in the case of Co₂Cr_{0.6}Fe_{0.4}AlP₀ = 0.4 - 0.9. Hence, it is shown that Fe substitution of Cr in Co₂Cr_{1-x}FeₓAl Heusler alloys at a concentration of x=0.4 significantly increase the Curie temperature without marked influence on the spin polarization.
