2015 Gd 5 ( Si , Ge ) 4 thin film displaying large magnetocaloric and strain effects due to magnetostructural transition

Abstract

Magnetic refrigeration based on the magnetocaloric effect is one of the best alternatives to compete with vapor-compression technology. Despite being already in its technology transfer stage, there is still room for optimization, namely, on the magnetic responses of the magnetocaloric material. In parallel, the demand for different magnetostrictive… (More)
