We have investigated crystal quality of Co$$_{2}$$(Mn$$_{1-x}$$Fe$$_{x}$$)Si (CMFS) epitaxially grown on Ge(111) by using Rutherford-backscattering spectrometry and an axial-ion-channeling technique. It was found that the CMFS/Ge and Co$$_{2}$$FeSi (CMFS with x = 1)/Ge have larger static atomic displacement than Fe-based ternary Heusler alloy Fe$$_{2}$$MnSi and Fe$$_{2}$$CoSi/Ge(111). Quaternary alloys may be affected by increase of mixing entropy. Significant disordering at the interface of CMFS with x = 0.75 was found, and discussed on the basis of thermodynamics.
