Title: Disentangling the surface and bulk electronic structures of LaOFeAs

Abstract

We performed a comprehensive angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy study of the electronic band structure of LaOFeAs single crystals. We found that samples cleaved at low temperature show an unstable and very complicated band structure, whereas samples cleaved at high temperature exhibit a stable and clearer electronic structure. Using in situ surface doping with K and supported by first-principles calculations, we identify both surface and bulk bands. Our assignments are confirmed by the difference in the temperature dependence of the bulk and surface states.
