Abstract: We report the thermal and magnetic hysteresis diagram for mnAs that comes from a microscopic description of a magnetic system through a model Hamiltonian that takes into account the magnetoelastic interaction. The temperature and magnetic hysteresis intervals are governed by the magnetoelastic interaction parameter, which leads to the energy barrier between stable and metastable minima in the exact free energy, obtained from our microscopic model. Application of the model to the MnAs first-order magnetic material, which presents high hysteresis effect, leads to a good agreement with the experimental magnetic and magnetocaloric data.
