English abstract:
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.
