Summary of "Track the bands: Verwey phase transition in single magnetite nanocrystals."

Verwey transition in magnetite is known for ages as an opening of bandgap below a transition temperature. With scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS) in obtaining density of states in an extremely localized manner, STS has revealed Verwey transition in a single nanocrystal of FeO as a transition between a gapless state and a gapped state at around 110 K. In this work, we deliberate on the band-edges responsible during opening/collapse of the band gap. We observe that the change in the conduction band is comparatively larger than the change in the valence band during the transition. The higher change in conduction band position has been explained in terms of antibonding nature of iron and oxygen orbitals in forming the conduction band and thereby its proneness to be affected upon the phase-change involved during a Verwey transition. The non-bonding nature of oxygen in forming the valence band has made the band less vulnerable during the transition.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Regulatory signaling systems that control the progression of the CELL CYCLE through the G1 PHASE and allow transition to S PHASE when the cells are ready to undergo DNA REPLICATION. DNA DAMAGE, or the deficiencies in specific cellular components or nutrients may cause the cells to halt before progressing through G1 phase.

A cyclin subtype that is transported into the CELL NUCLEUS at the end of the G2 PHASE. It stimulates the G2/M phase transition by activating CDC2 PROTEIN KINASE.

Members of the src-family tyrosine kinases that are activated during the transition from G2 PHASE to M PHASE of the CELL CYCLE. It is highly homologous to PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEIN PP60(C-SRC).

Sports performed on a track, field, or arena and including running events and other competitions, such as the pole vault, shot put, etc.

A cyclin-dependent kinase that forms a complex with CYCLIN C and is active during the G1 PHASE of the CELL CYCLE. It plays a role in the transition from G1 to S PHASE and in transcriptional regulation.
