In this thesis, the boundary conditions for the development of giant magnetocaloric materials are investigated. The magnetocaloric effect is found in magnetic materials, when they are subjected to an external magnetic field. This leads to abrupt magnetization changes that cause a temperature change in the material. Materials based on Fe2P show...

Mn-Fe-P-Si compounds are, to date, the most promising materials for refrigeration and energy conversion applications due to the combination of giant magnetocaloric effect (GMCE) and low material cost. The nature of magneto-elastic transition was studied on both length- and time-scales using neutron diffraction, muSR and Mӧssbauer spectroscopy...
