Influence of heat treatment on the magnetic and magnetocaloric properties in Nd0.6Sr0.4MnO3 compound
In the present investigation, the effect of annealing temperature on the structural, electrical transport and the magnetocaloric effect of Nd0.6Sr0.4MnO3manganites have been studied. Rietveld refinement of XRD data reveals that all samples are single phase with a space group (Pnma). Heat treatment enhances the grain size and decreases the porosity. All samples suffer Curie transition from ferromagnetic to paramagnetic. Magnetocaloric ... Read more
