"Spin reorientation transition of magnetite (001)";
Physical Review B,
We have imaged the rearrangement of the magnetic domains on magnetite (001) when crossing the spin
reorientation transition and the Verwey transition with nanometer resolution. By means of spin-polarized lowenergy
electron microscopy we have monitored the change in the easy axes lowering the temperature through
both transitions in remanence. The spin reorientation transition occurs in two steps: initial nucleation and growth
of domains with a new surface magnetic orientation is followed by a smooth evolution.
