In this work, we studied the nature and dilemma of the inverse magnetocaloric effect using Ni50Mn36In14 magnetic shape memory alloy. In this context, the inverse magnetocaloric effects of Ni50Mn36In14 magnetic shape memory alloy polycrystalline samples were investigated as a function of annealing heat treatments by the thermo-magnetometry method. Two forms of Ni49TiMn36In14 magnetic shape memory alloy were studied: one that predominantly undergoes a magnetic phase transition and the other that exhibits both a magnetic and martensitic phase transition. The magnetic behaviors and magnetocaloric properties of these alloys were analyzed to investigate the competition between magnetic and lattice contributions to the total entropy change. Finally, the mutually contradictory role of magnetic and lattice contributions was demonstrated.
