Critical single domain grain sizes in chains of interacting greigite particles: Implications for magnetosome crystals

Muxworthy, Adrian R; Williams, Wyn; Roberts, Andrew; Winklhofer, Michael; Chang, Liao; Posfai, Mihaly


Magnetotactic bacteria contain chains of magnetically interacting crystals (magnetosomes), which aid navigation (magnetotaxis). To improve the efficiency of magnetotaxis, magnetosome crystals (which can consist of magnetite or greigite) should be magnetic
