Research
In cooling technology, magnetic refrigeration which depends on magnetocaloric effect is commonly used in refrigerators to achieve exceptionally low temperatures. Magnetic refrigeration has a higher cooling efficiency, low energy consumption, more compact and environmentally friendly when compared with vapor-compression refrigeration. Magnetic refrigeration does not rely on the uses of harmful and ozone-depleting coolant gases.
