For the purpose of recovering the intriguing electronic properties of freestanding graphene at a solid surface, graphene self-organized on a Au monolayer on Ni(111) is prepared and characterized by scanning tunneling microscopy. Angle-resolved photoemission reveals a gapless linear pi-band dispersion near K[over] as a fingerprint of strictly monolayer(More)
We reveal a giant Rashba effect (α(R)≈1.3  eV Å) on a surface state of Ir(111) by angle-resolved photoemission and by density functional theory. It is demonstrated that the existence of the surface state, its spin polarization, and the size of its Rashba-type spin-orbit splitting remain unaffected when Ir is covered with graphene. The graphene protection(More)
The helical Dirac fermions at the surface of topological insulators show a strong circular dichroism which has been explained as being due to either the initial-state spin angular momentum, the initial-state orbital angular momentum, or the handedness of the experimental setup. All of these interpretations conflict with our data from Bi(2)Te(3) which depend(More)
Magnetic doping is expected to open a band gap at the Dirac point of topological insulators by breaking time-reversal symmetry and to enable novel topological phases. Epitaxial (Bi(1-x)Mn(x))2Se3 is a prototypical magnetic topological insulator with a pronounced surface band gap of ∼100 meV. We show that this gap is neither due to ferromagnetic order in the(More)
Epitaxial growth of topological insulator bismuth telluride by molecular beam epitaxy onto BaF2 (111) substrates is studied using Bi2Te3 and Te as source materials. By changing the beam flux composition, different stoichiometric phases are obtained, resulting in high quality Bi2Te3 and Bi1Te1 epilayers as shown by Raman spectroscopy and high-resolution(More)
We study the effect of Fe impurities deposited on the surface of the topological insulator Bi(2)Se(3) by means of core-level and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy. The topological surface state reveals surface electron doping when the Fe is deposited at room temperature and hole doping with increased linearity when deposited at low temperature (~8(More)
Spin and pseudospin in graphene are known to interact under enhanced spin-orbit interaction giving rise to an in-plane Rashba spin texture. Here we show that Au-intercalated graphene on Fe(110) displays a large (∼230 meV) bandgap with out-of-plane hedgehog-type spin reorientation around the gapped Dirac point. We identify two causes responsible. First, a(More)
The spin-orbit splitting of grapheneπ states can be strongly enhanced by external influences such as corrugation or proximity to heavier atoms. Here we investigate experimentally and theoretically whether such strong enhancement is possible for graphene on SiC(0001). By spinand angle-resolved photoemission we found for two independently grown samples no(More)

Graphene is considered a candidate material for spintronics. Recently, graphene grown on Ni(111) has been reported to show a Rashba effect which depends on the magnetization. By spin- and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy, we investigate the preconditions for such an effect for graphene on Ni as well as on Co which has a approximately 3x larger 3d(More)
