1 Experimental and theoretical Studies of the Magnetocaloric Effect (MCE) in the Mn 5-x Fe x Si 3 Series Michael Gottschlich 1 Olivier Gourdon 1, Michael Ohl 1, Jörg Perßon 2 1 Jülich Centre for Neutron Science outstation at the SNS at ORNL 2 Peter Grünberg Institut Forschungszentrum Jülich

2 The MCE MCE of Gd, Gschneider, et al The MCE is related mostly to the magnetic entropy changes of magnetic materials under the influence of an applied field Tc where the phenomenon occurs S –MCE obtains T of the MCE phenomenon

3 Application of the MCE B = 0 T=T 1

4 Application of the MCE B > 0 T>T 1

5 Application of the MCE B > 0 T=T 1
