We present genuine bulk Ir 5d jeff states of layered perovskite iridates obtained by hard-x-ray photoemission spectroscopy (HAXPES) with s- and p-polarized lights. HAXPES spectra of Sr2IrO4 and Ba2IrO4 are well reproduced by the quasi-particle densities of states calculated by the local density approximation with dynamical mean-field theory (LDA+DMFT). It is demonstrated that the insulating nature of the iridates is triggered by antiferromagnetic correlation (Slater type) combined with electron…

Spectral functions of Sr2IrO4: theory versus experiment
Recent work in the theoretical description of the spectral function of pure and electron-doped Sr2IrO4 based on a cluster extension of dynamical mean-field theory ('oriented-cluster DMFT') is reviewed and extended and compared to available angle-resolved photoemission data.

We have investigated the electronic structure of iridates in the double perovskite crystal structure containing either Ir$^{4+}$ or Ir$^{5+}$ using hard x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The

Two-Magnon Scattering in Spin–Orbital Mott Insulator Ba2IrO4
A spin–orbit induced Mott insulator Ba2IrO4 with the pseudo-spin Jeff = 1/2, showing an antiferromagnetic order (TN = 240 K), has been investigated by Raman spectroscopy. A broad peak with the B1g
Fermi arcs in a doped pseudospin-1/2 Heisenberg antiferromagnet
The observation of a related electronic state in a noncuprate material, strontium iridate (Sr2IrO4), in which the distinct cuprate fermiology is largely reproduced is reported, suggesting that Sr2 IrO4 is a useful model system for comparison to the cuprates.
