Researchers claim that these magnetic properties of metamagnets can be applied to bring more efficient refrigerators, airport scanners and heat pumps within the next 10 years.

Scientists discovered that the magnetic effect of apparently all metamagnets is that it is non-linear.

When these metamagnets are placed in an initial magnetic field and the field is doubled, they more than double in magnetic strength.

Scientists say that the first and foremost application of metamagnets is refrigeration. If this research work takes off, pretty soon these magnetic refrigerators can become a part of appliances in every household.
