The objective of this effort is to study the Magnetic Refrigeration which uses solid material as the refrigerant. These materials demonstrate the unique property known as magneto caloric effect, which means that they increase and decrease in temperature. This paper focuses on the working principle, comparison with conventional methods, different magneto caloric materials, benefits and practical applications of magnetic refrigeration. Benefits of magnetic refrigeration are lower cost, longer life, lower weight and higher efficiency because it only requires one moving part-the rotating disc on which the magneto-caloric material is mounted. The unit uses no gas compressor, no pumps, no working fluid, no valves and no ozone destroying chlorofluorocarbons/hydro chlorofluorocarbons. Potential commercial applications include cooling of electronics, super conducting components used in cooling of electronics, superconducting components used in telecommunication equipment, home and commercial refrigerator, air conditioning for homes, offices and automobiles and virtually any places where refrigeration is needed.
