What Has Been Achieved:
A MRPES platform that integrates helium lamp ARPES, static laser ARPES, trARPES, μARPES, MBE, and μMBE into one system.
Importance of the Achievement:
MRPES is not merely a combination of different ARPES modules, but also simultaneous probing into energy, momentum, space, and time, with uncompromised resolutions in each domain. This setup allows researchers to fully reveal the complex physics in novel quantum materials.
Unique Feature(s) of the MIP that Enabled this Achievement:
Synthesis of high-quality MnBi2Te4 and MnBi4Te7 single crystals are extremely challenging due to the disorders caused by its non-stoichiometry compositions. The 2DCC has developed a protocol to grow MnBi2Te4 and MnBi4Te7 single crystals with good quality. The close collaboration between the user and the 2DCC synthesis enables this work.
