Angle-resolved photoemission studies of the cuprate superconductors
The last decade witnessed significant progress in angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and its applications. Today, ARPES experiments with 2-meV energy resolution and
Contemporary Crustal Deformation Around Southeast Borderland of Tibetan Plateau
[1] We derive a detailed horizontal velocity field for the southeast borderland of the Tibetan Plateau using GPS data collected from the Crustal Motion Observation Network of China between 1998 and
Direct observation of the transition from indirect to direct bandgap in atomically thin epitaxial MoSe2.
The first direct observation of the transition from indirect to direct bandgap in monolayer samples is reported by using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy on high-quality thin films of MoSe2 with variable thickness, grown by molecular beam epitaxy.
Symmetry-breaking orbital anisotropy observed for detwinned Ba(Fe1-xCox)2As2 above the spin density wave transition
Nematicity, defined as broken rotational symmetry, has recently been observed in competing phases proximate to the superconducting phase in the cuprate high-temperature superconductors. Similarly,
Giant bandgap renormalization and excitonic effects in a monolayer transition metal dichalcogenide semiconductor.
The renormalized bandgap and large exciton binding observed here will have a profound impact on electronic and optoelectronic device technologies based on single-layer semiconducting TMDs.
Photon-enhanced thermionic emission for solar concentrator systems.
Temperature-dependent photoemission-yield measurements from GaN show strong evidence for photon-enhanced thermionic emission, and calculated efficiencies for idealized devices can exceed the theoretical limits of single-junction photovoltaic cells.
Quantum spin Hall state in monolayer 1T'-WTe2
A combination of photoemission and scanning tunnelling spectroscopy measurements provide compelling evidence that single layers of 1T'-WTe2 are a class of quantum spin Hall insulator. A quantum spin
Energy gaps in high-transition-temperature cuprate superconductors
The superconducting energy gap is perhaps the best-known of the spectral gaps in a superconductor, but there are many other types, including density waves and the mysterious pseudogap. This Review
Characterization of collective ground states in single-layer NbSe 2
What happens to correlated electronic phases—superconductivity and charge density wave ordering—as a material is thinned? Experiments show that both can remain intact in just a single layer of
Aharonov-Bohm interference in topological insulator nanoribbons.
Pronounced Aharonov-Bohm oscillations in the magnetoresistance clearly demonstrate the coherent propagation of two-dimensional electrons around the perimeter of the nanoribbon surface, as expected from the topological nature of the surface states.
