Presentation title

Magnetocaloric effect and martensitic transformation in ferromagnetic Heusler alloys

Dr. Franziska Scheibel is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the department of materials science at the Technical University of Darmstadt. Since January 2018 she is working on the ERC Advanced Grant Cool Innov in the field of multicaloric materials. Before, she was working at the University Duisburg-Essen in the department of experimental physics she did her doctoral study on the topic of the influence of hysteresis at magnetostructural transitions on the magnetocaloric properties of Heuslers, Antiperovskites, and Pnictides. She finished her Diploma in physics in the department of experimental physics at the University of Ulm on the topic of preparation and characterization of FePt(Cu) thin films prepared by pulsed laser deposition. Her current research focusses on the optimization and design of multicaloric Heusler alloys for a so-called multi-stimuli cooling cycle using both magnetic field and uniaxial compressive stress to induce the magneto-structural phase-transition.
