  • Nov. 2018Unlocking the Secrets of Metal-Insulator Transitions, Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) website showcases our studies on Verwey transition in magnetite.

By using an x-ray technique available at the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II), scientists found that the metal-insulator transition in the correlated material magnetite is a two-step process. The researchers from the University of California Davis published their paper in the journal Physical Review Letters. Read the complete news article here.
