The dependence of magnetization on the applied magnetic field and temperature was measured carefully near their Curie temperatures for two perovskite manganite samples: La0.67Ca0.33MnOδ and La0.60Y0.07Ca0.33MnOδ. It is suggested by the results that these materials can be utilized as both the thermal storage (passive regeneration) and as the working material (active regeneration) in an active magnetic regenerative refrigerator with very large temperature span, for their significant entropy change upon the application of a magnetic field and the easily tuned Curie temperatures.
