AbstractThe intermetallic compound Tb2In exhibits two magnetic phase transitions: a paramagnetic-ferromagnetic transition at T-C of 165 K and a ferromagnetic-antiferromagnetic one at 45 K. A large reversible magnetocaloric effect is observed in Tb2In. For a magnetic field change of 5 T, the maximum magnetic entropy change -Delta S-M is 6.6 J/kg K at T-C. Meanwhile, the full width at half maximum (delta T-FWHM) of the -Delta S-M - T curve has a very high value of 100 K and relative cooling power (RCP) is as high as 660 J/kg with no hysteresis loss. In particular, the large reversible -Delta S-M (3.5 J/kg K), delta T-FWHM (57 K) and RCP (200J/kg) are achieved for a low field change of 2 T. The large reversible magnetic-entropy changes, together with high delta T-FWHM and RCP values indicate that Tb2In is a suitable candidate material for magnetic refrigeration.
