Title: Phase Transitions and Magnetocaloric Properties in MnCo 1−x Zr x Ge Compounds

Abstract

The structural, magnetic, and magnetocaloric properties of MnC o 1 - x Z r x Ge ( 0.01 x 0.04 ) have been studied through X-ray diffraction, differential scanning calorimetry, and magnetization measurements. Results indicate that the partial substitution of Zr for Co in MnC o 1 - x Z r x Ge decreases the martensitic transition temperature ( T M ). For x = 0.02, T M was found to coincide with the ferromagnetic transition temperature ( T C ) resulting in a first-order magnetostructural transition (MST). A further increase in zirconium concentration ( x = 0.04) showed a single transition at T C . The MST from the paramagnetic to ferromagnetic state results in magnetic entropy changes ( - Δ S M ) of 7.2 J/kgK for Δ H = 5 T at 274 K for x = 0.02. The corresponding value of the relative cooling power (RCP) was found to be 266 J/kg for Δ H = 5 T. Thus, the observed large value of MCE and RCP makes this system a promising material for magnetic cooling applications.
