Abstract: In this paper we explore the magnetocaloric effect (MCE) of chromium-doped elpasolite Cs2NaAl1-x,CrxF6 (x = 0.01 and 0.62) single crystals. Magnetization and heat capacity data show the magnetocaloric potentials to be comparable to those of garnets, perovskites, and other fluorides, producing magnetic entropy changes of 0.5 J/kg K (x = 0.01) and 11 J/kg K (x = 0.62), and corresponding adiabatic temperature changes of 4 and 8 K, respectively. These values are for a magnetic field change of 50 kOe at a temperature around 3 K. A clear Schottky anomaly below 10 K, which becomes more apparent when an external magnetic field is applied, was observed and related to the splitting of the Cr3+ energy levels. These results hint at a new family of materials with potential wide use in cryorefrigeration.
