Probing the role of co substitution in the electronic structure of iron pnictides.


The role of Co substitution in the low-energy electronic structure of Ca(Fe(0.944)Co(0.056))(2)As(2) is investigated by resonant photoemission spectroscopy and density-functional theory. The Co 3d state center of mass is observed at 250 meV higher binding energy than that of Fe, indicating that Co possesses one extra valence electron and that Fe and Co are… (More)
