Electronic structure of carbon nanostripes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Carbon nanostripes of graphene structure prepared on the stepped Ni(771) surface have been studied by angle-resolved photoemission. The electronic structure is anisotropic: parallel to the stripe direction, a graphite-type dispersion is measured, whereas the perpendicular direction displays two entangled band structures shifted in energy with respect to each other. These are experimentally identified as the microsurface-centered band structure and its umklapp scattered image caused by the superlattice.
