Title: Final report on NRIP-funded magnetic refrigerator development project, July 1, 1975--October 1, 1977. [New Research Initiatives Program (NRIP)]

Abstract

A brief overview of Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory work on magnetic refrigeration which is covered in five publications is given. Two publications discuss the rudimentary refrigerators built at Los Alamos; two, the performance expected from more advanced designs; and one, the heat transfer experiments performed to provide the data necessary for implementation of those designs. The work discussed in each of these publications and the overall conclusions are described.
