[en] We have studied the spin-wave stiffness of the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya helimagnet FeGe in a temperature
range from 225 K up to TC ≈ 278.7 K by small-angle neutron scattering. The method we have used is
based on [Grigoriev et al., Phys. Rev. B 92, 220415(R) (2015)] and was extended here for the application
in polycrystalline samples. We confirm the validity of the anisotropic spin-wave dispersion for FeGe caused by
the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction. We have shown that the spin-wave stiffness A for the FeGe helimagnet
decreases with a temperature as A(T ) = 194[1 − 0.7(T/TC)4.2] meV °A2. The finite value of the spin-wave
stiffness A = 58 meV °A2 at TC classifies the order-disorder phase transition in FeGe as being the first-order one.
