Title: Orbital selectivity causing anisotropy and particle-hole asymmetry in the charge density wave gap of 2 H - TaS 2

Abstract

Here, we report an in-depth angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy study on 2H–TaS 2, a canonical incommensurate charge density wave (CDW) system. This study demonstrates that just as in related incommensurate CDW systems, 2H–TaSe 2 and 2H–NbSe 2, the energy gap (Δ CDW) of 2H–TaS 2 is localized along the K-centered Fermi surface barrels and is particle-hole asymmetric. The persistence of Δ CDW even at temperatures higher than the CDW transition temperature T CDW in 2H–TaS 2, reflects the similar pseudogap behavior observed previously in 2H–TaSe 2 and 2H–NbSe 2. However, in sharp contrast to 2H–NbSe 2, where ΔCDW is nonzero only in the vicinity of a few “hot spots” on the inner K-centered Fermi surface barrels, Δ CDW in 2H–TaS 2 is nonzero along the entirety of both K-centered Fermi surface barrels. Based on a tight-binding model, we attribute this dichotomy in the momentum dependence and the Fermi surface specificity of Δ CDW between otherwise similar CDW compounds to the different orbital orientations of their electronic states that participate in the CDW pairing. Our results suggest that the orbital selectivity plays a critical role in the description of incommensurate CDW materials.
