Advanced Energy Materials: Energy Applications of Magnetocaloric Materials

Along with environmentally-friendly refrigerants, high energy efficiency of refrigeration systems and heat pumping will represent the foundation of future refrigeration, heating and air-conditioning systems. Recuperation and utilization of waste heat at various temperature levels will enable significantly lower energy consumption not only for heating and refrigeration, but also for generation Read more…

Applications on Magnetocaloric Materials: Encyclopedia of Smart Materials

In the extensive Encyclopedia of Smart Materials (Reference Module in Materials Science and Materials Engineering) a paper on Applications on magnetocaloric materials was published. The paper is available here. Abstract: The first market applications of magnetocaloric materials were in low-temperature physics and magnetic resonance imaging. These important applications, however, represent Read more…
