Hybrid nanoscale devices for magnetocaloric refrigeration
Refrigeration is one of the main technologies contributing to climate change because of its use of greenhouse gases. Magnetic cooling provides an alternative refrigeration method that is more energy eﬃcient than standard refrigeration technologies, and magnetocaloric materials have proven to be some of the best candidate materials for magnetic cooling. In an eﬀort to make magnetocaloric materials a viable option for refrigeration, alternative methods of driving the magnetocaloric eﬀect, speciﬁcally with voltage and stress, are analyzed through simulations and experiments on two hybrid ...
