Abstract

The magnetocaloric effect (MCE) of Mn AS1-xSbx has been examined for 0≤x≤0.3. The magnetic entropy change caused by a magnetic field of Mn AS1-xSbx reaches 25-30J/K kg, which is about twice as large as those of conventional materials near room temperature. The origin of the large MCE of Mn AS1-xSbx is unusual magnetic behavior in the vicinity of the first-order magnetic transition.
