Abstract

We studied the spectral functions of URu 2Si 2 in the hidden-order state by means of ultrahigh-resolution angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. High signal-to-noise ratio data uncover the existence of two anomalous fine structures, namely a "splitting" in the previously reported narrow dispersive band, and a small, dispersionless "satellite" structure. These structures can be explained by neither ordinary bands nor the development of a hybridization of two states; thus our observation should evoke the consideration of complicated many-body effects. As a possible origin, we suggest the existence of electron-mode coupling in the ordered state.
