Symposium ES8—Caloric Materials for Energy-Efficient Applications

Magnetocaloric, electrocaloric and mechanocaloric effects are reversible thermal changes that are currently studied near phase transitions in magnetically, electrically and mechanically responsive materials due to changes in magnetic, electric and mechanical field. These materials could replace harmful fluids for refrigeration and air-conditioning, and improve energy efficiency of gas liquefactors, so it is important to understand the underlying phenomena behind outstanding caloric materials in order to improve system performance in terms of temperature span, cooling-power density, and energy efficiency.

This symposium will cover all types of caloric material and will range from fundamental aspects to applications of such materials in systems. Multidisciplinary topics related to physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering will be cross-fertilised by invited presentations in order to accelerate the development of these materials toward applications.

Topics will include:

  • Magnetocaloric materials
  • Electrocaloric materials
  • Mechanocaloric (elastocaloric and barocaloric) materials
  • Multicaloric effects
  • Devices and applications
  • Mutiscale theory, modelling and simulations, from atomistic to mesoscopic to macroscopic level
