|Title:||Magnetic properties and magnetocaloric effect of the HoAgGa compound|
|Author:||da Silva, LM|

|Abstract:||Magnetic properties and magnetocaloric effect (MCE) of the HoAgGa compound are investigated by magnetization and heat capacity measurements. A giant reversible MCE was observed around T-C = 7.2K. The maximum values of magnetic entropy change and adiabatic temperature are found to be 16 J kg(-1) K-1 and 6 K, respectively, with a refrigerant capacity value of 262 J kg(-1) for field change of 5T. These magnetocaloric parameters also remain large for a wide range of temperature above TC. The large MCE as well as no hysteresis loss make HoAgGa an attractive candidate for low temperature magnetic refrigerant. (C) 2013 AIP Publishing LLC.|
