# Monte Carlo calculations of the magnetocaloric effect in (Gd0.6Tb0.4)5Si4(Gd0.6Tb0.4)5Si4

@article{Nobrega2007MonteCC, title={Monte Carlo calculations of the magnetocaloric effect in (Gd0.6Tb0.4)5Si4(Gd0.6Tb0.4)5Si4}, author={E. P. Nobrega and Nilson de Oliveira and Pedro Jorge von Ranke and Amos Troper}, journal={Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials}, year={2007}, volume={310}, pages={2805-2807} }

In this work we calculate the magnetocaloric effect in the compound (Gd0.6Tb0.4)5Si4(Gd0.6Tb0.4)5Si4. We use a model Hamiltonian of interacting 4f spins and treat the 4f spin–spin interaction in the Monte Carlo simulation. The theoretically calculated isothermal entropy changes upon variations of the magnetic field are in good agreement with the available experimental data.
