Title: Anisotropic charge density wave in layered 1 T - TiS e 2

Abstract

We present a three-dimensional study on the anisotropy of the charge density wave (CDW) in 1T-TiSe 2, by means of in situ atomically resolved electron microscopy at cryogenic temperatures in both reciprocal and real spaces. Using coherent nanoelectron diffraction, we observed short-range coherence of the in-plane CDW component while the long-range coherence of out-of-plane CDW component remains intact. An in-plane CDW coherence length of ~10 nm and an out-of-plane CDW coherence length of 17.5 nm, as a lower bound, were determined. The electron modulation was observed using electron energy-loss spectroscopy and verified by an orbital-projected density of states. Our integrated approach reveals anisotropic CDW domains at the nanoscale, and illustrates electron modulation-induced symmetry breaking of a two-dimensional material in three dimensions, offering an opportunity to study the effect of reduced dimensionality in strongly correlated systems.
