TaTe2 is a quasi-2D charge density wave (CDW) compound with distorted-1T–type structure exhibiting double-zigzag chains. Here we report the Fermi surface topology of a low-temperature phase of TaTe2 (LT-TaTe2) by anisotropic magneto-transport and magnetic measurements on high-quality single crystals. An anomalous large linear magnetoresistance up to 140% at 3 K in 9 T was observed, suggesting the existence of a small Fermi pocket in the Dirac cone state in quantum transport models. Moreover…

Quasi-two-dimensional transition-metal dichalcogenides are a key platform for exploring emergent nanoscale phenomena arising from complex interactions. Access to the underlying degrees-of-freedom on



Observation of Dirac cone electronic dispersion in BaFe2As2.

An angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy study of BaFe2As2 reveals the existence of a Dirac cone in the electronic structure of this material below the spin-density-wave temperature, which is responsible for small spots of high photoemissions intensity at the Fermi level.

Classification of charge density waves based on their nature

It is shown that a large EPC does not necessarily induce the CDW phase, with Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ as the example, and the charge-ordered phenomena observed in various cuprates are not driven by FSN or EPC.
