Episode 36: μ: Magnetocaloric Materials

Taylor and Ramsey look into the future of refrigeration and how magnetocaloric materials will drive a more efficient system. How soon will you be replacing your fridge with these and what exactly makes them tick?

Articles Discussed:

  • 2020 E. Levin, Structural coupling and magnetic tuning in Mn2−xCoxP magnetocalorics for thermomagnetic power generation
  • 2018 Alexander Funk, Getting magnetocaloric materials into good shape: Cold-working of La(Fe, Co, Si)13 by powder-in-tube-processing
