|Title:||Isothermal variation of the entropy (Delta S(T)) for the compound Gd(5)Ge(4) under hydrostatic pressure|
von Ranke, PJ
|Abstract:||In the present work, the isothermal variation of the entropy (Delta S(T)) for the compound Gd(5)Ge(4) was studied at different applied hydrostatic pressures (from 0 up to 0.58 GPa). In all pressure ranges, we observe the giant magnetocaloric effect. The AST data for the compound Gd(5)Ge(4) at zero applied pressure present two peaks: the lowest temperature peak is due to irreversible processes and the highest temperature peak is due to magneto structural transitions. Increasing the pressure, the lowest temperature peak displaces to lower temperatures and disappears. The magnitude of the other peak has a nonlinear behavior with pressure. Different protocols were used to obtain Delta S(T) at zero applied pressure and the results indicate that Delta S(T) strongly depends on the initial and final states of Gd(5)Ge(4) compound. We also present a T-P magnetic phase diagram built from the available magnetic data. (C) 2008 American Institute of Physics. [DOI: 10.1063/1.2980040]|
