Title: Observation of highly dispersive bands in pure thin film C 60

Abstract

While long-theorized, the direct observation of multiple highly dispersive $${\mathrm{C}}_{60}$$ valence bands has eluded researchers for more than two decades due to a variety of intrinsic and extrinsic factors. We report a realization of multiple highly dispersive (330–520 meV) valence bands in pure thin film $${\mathrm{C}}_{60}$$ on a novel substrate—the three-dimensional topological insulator $${\mathrm{Bi}}_{2}{\mathrm{Se}}_{3}$$—through the use of angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and first-principles calculations. The effects of this novel substrate reducing $${\mathrm{C}}_{60}$$ rotational disorder are discussed. Our results provide important considerations for past and future band structure studies as well as the increasingly popular $${\mathrm{C}}_{60}$$ electronic device applications, especially those making use of heterostructures.
