Mn-Fe based alloys are currently being used as magnetocaloric materials in near-room-temperature magnetic cooling applications. These alloys can exhibit a magneto-structural phase transition, leading to a giant magnetocaloric effect (MCE). The magnitude of the MCE is sensitive to annealing conditions, hence, the effect of annealing on the MCE was studied… CONTINUE READING
