Achieving a broad refrigeration temperature region through the combination of successive caloric effects in a multiferroic Ni50Mn35In15 alloy

Abstract : Solid-state refrigeration based on the caloric effects has been conceived to be a high-efficient and environmental-friendly alternative to replace the vapor-compression refrigeration technique. The implementation of solid-state refrigeration requires that the refrigerants should possess not only remarkable caloric effect but also wide working temperature region. In this work, we demonstrate that various caloric effects can be achieved successively in a multiferroic Ni50Mn35In15 meta-magnetic shape memory alloy prepared by directional solidification, including inverse magnetocaloric effect around inverse martensitic transformation, conventional magnetocaloric effect around Curie transition and elastocaloric effect above Curie transition. Among them, the elastocaloric effect is particular striking, where a giant adiabatic temperature variation up to –19.7 K is achieved on removing a moderate stress of 350 MPa due to the elimination of negative magnetic contribution, with the specific adiabatic temperature change of 56 K GPa–1. Furthermore, through the combination of these successive caloric effects, a broad refrigeration temperature region covering the temperature range from 270 K to 380 K can be achieved. It is demonstrated that the combination of various caloric effects could be a promising way to extend the working temperature range of solid state refrigeration.
