Angle-resolved photoemission is employed to measure the band structure of TiSe2 in order to clarify the nature of the ( 2 x 2 x 2) charge density wave transition. The results show a very small indirect gap in the normal phase transforming into a larger indirect gap at a different location in the Brillouin zone. Fermi surface topology is irrelevant in this(More)
Two infrared (IR)-active vibrational modes, observed at 93 and 113 cm(-1) in Raman scattering, are evidence of an inversion symmetry breakdown in thin (~10 nm) nanoplates of topological insulator Bi(2)Te(3) as-grown on SiO(2). Both Raman and IR modes are preserved after typical device fabrication processes. In nanoplates transferred to another SiO(2)(More)
Topological insulators are novel quantum materials with metallic surface transport but insulating bulk behavior. Often, topological insulators are dominated by bulk contributions due to defect induced bulk carriers, making it difficult to isolate the more interesting surface transport characteristics. Here, we report the synthesis and characterization of(More)
We report a Raman scattering study of low-temperature, pressure-induced melting of the charge-density-wave (CDW) phase of 1T-TiSe2. Our measurements reveal that the collapse of the CDW state occurs in three stages: (i) For P<5 kbar, the pressure dependence of the CDW amplitude mode energies and intensities are indicative of a "crystalline" CDW regime; (ii)(More)
Despite an enormous amount of research on carbon based nanostructures, relatively little is known about the electronic structure of multi-walled carbon fullerenes, also known as carbon onions. In part, this is due to the very high computational expense involved in estimating electronic structure of large molecules. At the same time, experimentally, the(More)
We present the results of extensive Monte Carlo simulations of intercalated manganese-titanium (Mn-Ti) layered TiS2 crystals. The computational model involves mixtures of Mn and Ti in various percentages placed on a triangular lattice with fixed lattice sites and up to five layers. The range of concentrations of intercalated Mn studied was 5%  ⩽  X Mn  ⩽ (More)
