Abstract

The structural, magnetic and magnetocaloric properties of Ni2Mn1+xIn1-x alloys, prepared using an arc-melting furnace in an argon environment, have been studied for their potential application in cost-effective magnetic refrigeration technology. The room-temperature x-ray diffraction shows that the Ni2Mn1+xIn1-x alloys with 0 x 0.34 exhibit austenite cubic phase, whereas the alloys with x > 0.34 have mixed tetragonal martensite and cubic austenite phases. The Ni2Mn1.34In0.66 alloy shows a clear second-order phase transition with a Curie temperature of 305 K but its elemental composition is very close to the critical composition between first and second-order phase transitions. The calculated magnetic entropy change and relative cooling power of the Ni2Mn1.34In0.66 alloy measured at 3 T field are 4.5 J kg-1 K-1 and 201 J kg-1, respectively. The temperature dependent resistivity of Ni2Mn1.34In0.66 alloy measured at H = 0 Oe shows that the sample has a room temperature resistivity of 7 The absence of thermal and magnetic hysteresis due to second-order magnetic phase change, coupled with higher values of magnetic entropy change and relative cooling power, suggests that the Ni2Mn1.34In0.66 alloy has the potential for magnetic refrigeration.
