**Experimental and theoretical Studies of the Magnetocaloric Effect (MCE) in the Mn5-xFexSi3 Series**

Michael Gottschlich1 Olivier Gourdon1, Michael Ohl1, Jörg Perßon2 1 Jülich Centre for Neutron Science outstation at the SNS at ORNL 2 Peter Grünberg Institut Forschungszentrum Jülich

2
The MCE 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 DS –MCE obtains DT of the MCE phenomenon MCE of Gd, Gschneider, et al. 2005
