​Caloric Effects in Ferroic Materials

Apr 18, 2018 12:00pm ‐ Apr 18, 2018 1:30pm


The April, 2018 issue of MRS Bulletin on “Caloric effects in ferroic materials” introduced the reader to the state-of-the-art and ongoing developments in ferroic-caloric materials and their implementations into cooling devices. Ferroic cooling cycles were explained, along with the similarities and differences among magnetocaloric, electrocaloric, and elastocaloric cooling. The development of these materials for cooling has enabled new functionalities beyond refrigeration, including the use of magnetocaloric materials for hyperthermia therapy for cancer treatment.

The talks in this webinar expanded upon the MRS Bulletin issue, and attendees were able to interact—in real time—with the webinar presenters.
