By employing 57Fe nuclear resonant inelastic X-ray scattering as in [1], we determined the Fe-projected vibrational density of states (VDOS) of hydrogenated LaFe11.4Si1.6Hy and non-hydrogenated Mn-doped La1.06Fe11.4Si1.5Mn0.1 as well as hydrogenated and Mn doped La1.06Fe11.4Si1.5Mn0.1Hy. The hydrogenated compounds have potential use as refrigerants due to a first-order magneto-structural phase transition near room temperature. Distinct differences between the VDOS of non-hydrogenated and hydrogenated samples were discovered. This finding is in qualitative agreement with preliminary results from DFT calculations. Vibrational thermodynamic quantities were calculated from the VDOS. The change of vibrational entropy and specific heat across the phase transition was found to be smaller for the hydrogenated than for the non-hydrogenated samples. Our results demonstrate that knowledge of the VDOS is important to understand intrinsic thermodynamics of these magnetocaloric materials.
