Brief description The objectives of this project are to develop new magnetocaloric materials, study their properties and their potential as components of advanced magnetic refrigeration systems. The outcomes of this project will provide an opportunity for Australian industry to produce magnetocaloric materials and magnetic refrigeration systems with higher quality, to embark on this novel innovation technology in an effective way, and to access the international magnetic refrigeration market. In the longer term, the successful outcome of this research could lead to energy savings and an overall reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, as well as contributing to the associated economic and social goals.
