Abstract:The magnetocaloric response of Ni–Cu based multilayers has been studied with the aim of optimizing their magnetic field dependence. In contrast to the behavior of single phase materials, whose peak magnetic entropy change follows a power law with exponents close to 0.75, multilayering leads to exponents of ∼1 for an extended temperature span close to the transition temperature. This demonstrates that nanostructuring can be a good strategy to enhance the magnetic field responsiveness of magnetocaloric materials.
