The physics of quantum materials is dictated by many-body interactions and mathematical concepts such as symmetry and topology that have transformed our understanding of matter. Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES), which directly probes the electronic structure in momentum space, has played a central role in the discovery, characterization, and understanding of quantum materials ranging from strongly-correlated states of matter to those exhibiting non-trivial topology. Over the…
