The magnetocaloric properties (the adiabatic temperature change) of the high purity single crystalline dysprosium have been measured directly over the temperature range from 78 to 220 K in magnetic fields from 0 to 14 kOe applied along the easy magnetization direction (a-axis). These results are in good to excellent agreement, except for two regions (105 to 127 K, and 179 to 182 K), with the previous magnetocaloric effect data reported on lower purity dysprosium samples. The magnetic phase diagram of Dy has been refined based on the results of these measurements and two new high magnetic field phases have been identified.
