Simulation of complex magnetic intermetallics for ferroic cooling — •Peter Entel and Markus Gruner — Faculty of Physics, University Duisburg-Essen, 47048 Duisburg, Germany

We discuss the structural and magnetic properties of magnetic Heusler intermetallics like Ni-Mn-(Ga, In, Sn) doped with Co, which undergo a magnetostructural phase transition if rapidly quenched. This leads to a large inverse magnetocaloric effect. The coupling of structural and magnetic degrees of freedom is an intrinsic effect and can be explained by a microscopic itinerant band model where electrons are coupled to tetagonal distortions. The model explains why martensitic instability and high-spin state (ferromagnetic order) are mutually exclusive and only distortion and low-spin state (antiferromagnetic order) may coexist. Under magnetic field we observe kinetic arrest phenomena. For the materials which are less rapidly quenched, this magnetostructural phase transition shows time-dependent effects and starts to fade away and phase segregation into cubic ferromagnetic Heusler phase and tetragonal antiferromagnetic Ni-Mn phase occurs for all Mn excess Heusler alloys in agrement with experimental findings [1].
