ABSTRACT
Inverse and direct magnetocaloric properties were evaluated in preferentially textured Mn50Ni40In10 ribbons applying the magnetic field H∥ along the ribbon length and perpendicular H⊥ to the ribbon plane (ΔH=30 kOe). Maximum magnetic entropy change, hysteretic losses, and refrigerant capacity were not significantly affected by crystallographic texture. Refrigeration capacity around structural transition is strongly reduced by the large hysteretic losses associated to the metamagnetic field-induced reverse martensitic transformation and narrower working temperature range making the interval around the magnetic transition more efficient for a refrigerant cycle (RCstruct=71 J kg-1 versus RCstructeff≈60 J kg-1, and RCmagn=89–86 J kg-1, for H∥ and H⊥, respectively).
