Matériaux magnétoréfrigérants à large zone de travail

Abstract : The global warming by its scale and its complexity puts several questions on the future of our planet. One of the ways proposed to slow down this process is the reduction of the production of greenhouse gases. The domains of the refrigeration try to be renewed to answer the new ecological standards and one of the most promising alternatives is the magnetic refrigeration based on the magnetocaloric effect. This report concerns the research of new magnetorefrigerants with large temperature span and joins directly in this environmental and economic stake which aims at replacing the classic systems of refrigeration in a near future. At first, this research works focused on Gd-Tb alloys: various nuances of these alloys would allow to widen the temperature range. Their magnetocaloric properties were determined and a first study on their behavior in corrosion was begun in various coolants. Finally, the optimization of their shaping was realized for their use in the prototype of Cooltech Applications company. Secondly, we studied single-phase compounds as derivatives of Mn3GaC or Mn3Sn2 which present several successive magnetic transitions and thus a large temperature span. A lot of substitutions were simultaneously realized on the Mn and Sn sites of the compound Mn3Sn2 continuing the works led within the team on Mn3Sn2 and its derivatives since 2006
