In this Educational Module, students will characterize the magnetic properties of a sample of Fe3O4, more commonly known as magnetite. The primary emphasis will be to observe the Verwey transition, which is a structural phase transition accompanied by charge ordering. Although first reported in 1939, the underlying physics of the Verwey transition continues to be studied to this day.
