Yaroslav Mudryk and Vitalij Pecharsky, both scientists at Ames Laboratory with expertise in solid state cooling, authored a chapter on rare earth materials’ role in that area, with an overview of the magnetocaloric effect, cryogenic applications, near-room-temperature magnetic refrigeration and giant magnetocaloric effect, and novel thermoelectric materials containing rare earths.
