Abstract : Holmium (Ho)‐doped DyMnO3 multiferroic compound is prepared using conventional solid‐state reaction route, and X‐ray powder diffraction analysis is conducted to confirm the single‐phase structure. Coexistence of magnetic and electric behavior in case of multiferroics is analyzed by heat capacity measurements from low temperature (2 K) to room temperature (300 K) under different magnetic fields. Herein, the existence antiferromagnetic and ferroelectric phase transitions in this compound at <10, 18, and 40 K, respectively, is revealed, which are attributed to the structural ordering or alignment of Mn3+ ions and R3+ ions. The magnetocaloric effect of this sample is also studied from heat capacity measurements. A maximum magnetic entropy change (ΔS)M of ≈6.3 J kg−1 K−1 and adiabatic temperature change (ΔT)ad of 3–4 K is achieved in 0.1Ho‐doped compound for a magnetic field change of 5 T and useful for low‐temperature magnetic refrigeration applications.
