Iron nanoparticles boost magnetocaloric effect

Researchers at NCA&T have developed a nanostructured material featuring iron nanoparticles embedded in a titanium nitride thin-film matrix, which exhibits a strong magnetocaloric effect over a large range of temperatures and a high thermal conductivity. This holds promise in the emerging field of magnetic refrigeration as a potentially low-carbon technology that does not rely on toxic rare earth metals. Further information about this new nanostructured material is here.
