Magnetic Properties and Giant Magnetocaloric Effect In Mn-based Heusler Compounds

Nguyen Huy Dan, Nguyen Manh An

Abstract


Magnetic properties and giant magnetocaloric effect (GMCE) of Mn-based Heusler compounds such as Co-Mn-Si, Ni-Mn-Sn, Ni-Mn-Sb have been investigated. The results show that the structure strongly influences on magnetic properties and GMCE of these alloys. The coexistence of ferromagnetic (FM) and antiferromagnetic (AFM) orders is observed. The magnetic phase transitions can be controlled by changing composition and annealing condition of the alloys. GMCEs with large magnitude and wide working temperature range have been obtained on these alloys showing their application potential for magnetic refrigeration technology.
