Nuclear and magnetic structure of magnetite under pressure to 5.3 GPa and at low temperatures to 130 K by neutron scattering

By S. Klotz, G. Rousse, Th. Strässle, C. L. Bull and M. Guthrie


Neutron powder diffraction data are reported on well-characterized samples of magnetite under hydrostatic pressure between 0 and 5.3 GPa and in the temperature range 130–300 K. We find that the inverse spinel structure is stable under these conditions, that there is no change in the long-range ferrimagnetic order, and that the refined structural coordinates related to it (oxygen internal coordinate and magnetic moments) are pressure and temperature independent in the P/T range considered
