Resumen

“The Oldest Metal-Insulator Transition in Condensed Matter: the Verwey Transition of Magnetite, from the Bulk to the Surface”
Magnetite is the oldest magnetic material know to humankind. It is a magnetic conductor with applications in fields as diverse as catalysis and spintronics. But its popularity within the condensed matter community lies partly in that it presents the oldest known metal-insulator transition, the Verwey transition, whose discovery is now nearly a century old. In this talk we will introduce the metal-insulator transitions, and focus on our results on the (100) surface of magnetite by low energy electron microscopy [1-4].
