The electronic band structure and Fermi surface of ZrTe3 was determined by angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. Several bands and a large part of the Fermi surface are found to be split by 100-200 meV into two parallel dispersions. Calculations of the bulk band structure cannot reproduce this splitting even if spin-orbit interaction is taken into account. A bilayer model representing the top layers of a surface-relaxed structure without reconstruction introduces the observed splitting and…

Disorder Quenching of the Charge Density Wave in ZrTe_{3}.

The charge density wave (CDW) in ZrTe_{3} is quenched in samples with a small amount of Te isoelectronically substituted by Se to suppress the suppression of long-range order of the CDW.

Detailed electronic structure of three-dimensional Fermi surface and its sensitivity to charge density wave transition in ZrTe3 revealed by high resolution laser-based angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy

The detailed information of the electronic structure is the key to understanding the nature of charge density wave (CDW) order and its relationship with superconducting order in the microscopic

Enhanced Superconductivity and Electron Correlations in Intercalated ZrTe$_3$

Charge density waves (CDWs) with superconductivity, competing Fermi surface instabilities and collective orders, have captured much interest in two-dimensional van der Waals (vdW) materials.

Superconductivity and Charge Density Wave in ZrTe3−xSex

It is reported that superconductivity emerges upon Se doping in CDW conductor ZrTe3 when the long range CDW order is gradually suppressed.

Coexistence of superconductivity and charge-density wave in the quasi-one-dimensional material HfTe3

The results show that HfTe3 is a promising new material to help study the relationship between SC and CDW, and the first experimental evidence for metallicity, superconductivity (SC) and the co-existence of charge density waves (CDW) in the quasi-one-dimensional material Hf Te3.

Mixed bulk-filament nature in superconductivity of the charge-density-wave conductor ZrTe 3

We have shown that the superconducting transitions in ZrTe3 are successive from filamentary to bulk, based on experimental results obtained for a superconducting specific-heat anomaly and the

Quasi-one-dimensional superconductivity in the pressurized charge-density-wave conductor HfTe3

HfTe 3 single crystal undergoes a charge-density-wave (CDW) transition at T CDW  = 93 K without the appearance of superconductivity (SC) down to 50 mK at ambient pressure. Here, we determined its CDW

Thermal Dynamics of Charge Density Wave Pinning in ZrTe_{3}.

The evolution from weak to strong impurity pinning through the CDW transition can be understood as a result of losing phase rigidity.

Electron-momentum dependence of electron-phonon coupling underlies dramatic phonon renormalization in YNi2B2C

It is shown that strong phonon broadening can occur in the absence of both Fermi surface nesting and lattice anharmonicity, if electron-phonon coupling is strongly enhanced for specific values of electron-momentum, k .
