Observation of the hybridization gap and Fano resonance in the Kondo lattice URu2Si2.

The nature of the second-order phase transition that occurs in URu2Si2 at 17.5 K remains puzzling despite intensive research. A key question emerging in the field is whether a hybridization gap between the renormalized bands can be identified as the "hidden" order parameter. We report on the measurement of a hybridization gap in URu2Si2 employing a… CONTINUE READING
