|Title:||Magnetocaloric Effect Of La 0.8sr 0.2mno 3 Compound Under Pressure|
|Abstract:||The La0.8 Sr0.2 MnO3 compound presents a ferromagnetic paramagnetic transition around room temperature to which a reasonably high magnetocaloric effect is associated, turning this material of interest for application in magnetic refrigeration. We synthesized this compound in fiber single crystalline form by the Laser Heated Pedestal Growth method. The sample was characterized by x-ray diffraction and magnetic measurements as a single phase and with the required magnetic properties. We measured the magnetic properties and the magnetocaloric effect under hydrostatic pressure for pressures up to 6 kbar as a function of temperature. Our results indicate that the Curie temperature increases with pressure while the low temperature transition from the orthorhombic to the rhombhoedral structures decreases as pressure increases. This is in close agreement with the literature. Measurement of the magnetocaloric effect at the high temperature transition indicates that the peak of the effect follows the trend of the Curie temperature, but its maximum value remains almost constant as a function of pressure. © 2005 American Institute of Physics.|
