Structural distortion, charge modulation and local anisotropies in magnetite below the Verwey transition using resonant X-ray scattering.

Abstract

The pattern of charge modulations and local anisotropies below the Verwey transition has been determined and quantified in high-quality Fe(3)O(4) single crystals and thin films grown on MgO by using resonant X-ray scattering at the Fe K-edge. The energy, polarization and azimuthal angle dependencies of an extensive set of reflections with potential… (More)
