Abstract

of ErCo4Ge2 are strongly dependent on the ac magnetic field frequency and bias dc magnetic field. A field induced metamagnetic transition from AFM to ferromagnetic state is observed below T-N. Under a magnetic field change of 50 kOe, the maximum value of the magnetic entropy change (magnetocaloric effect) -Delta S-M is 14.2 J/kg K at 2.75K and the adiabatic temperature change Delta T-ad is 5.7 K. In particular, a large -Delta S-M value of 11.7 J/kg K is achieved for a low magnetic field change of 20 kOe. (C) 2015 AIP Publishing LLC.
