The subtle interplay among electronic degrees of freedom (charge and orbital orderings), spin and lattice distortion that conspire at the Verwey transition in magnetite (Fe3O4) is still a matter of controversy. Here, we provide compelling evidence that these electronic orderings are manifested as a continuous phase transition at the temperature where a spin(More)
Despite being one of the oldest known magnetic materials, and the classic mixed valence compound, thought to be charge ordered, the structure of magnetite below the Verwey transition is complex and the presence and role of charge order is still being debated. Here, we present resonant x-ray diffraction data at the iron K-edge on forbidden (0, 0, 2n+1)(C)(More)
A widely tunable, narrow band Ti:Sapphire oscillator is reported. Tunability and spectral narrowing were achieved by use of a volume Bragg grating in the cavity. Tunability was observed from 785 nm to 852 nm while maintaining a spectral linewidth less than 10 pm with essentially no spectral jitter. Oscillation on only 2 longitudinal modes is also reported(More)
'Forbidden' Bragg reflections of iron orthoborate Fe(3)BO(6) were studied theoretically and experimentally in the vicinity of the iron K edge. Their energy spectra are explained as resulting from the interference of x-rays scattered from two inequivalent crystallographic sites occupied by iron ions. This particular structure property gives rise to complex(More)
