Abstract

The role of Co substitution in the low-energy electronic structure ofCa(Fe 0.944Co 0.056) 2As 2 is investigated by resonant photoemission spectroscopy and density-functional theory. The Co 3d state center of mass is observed at 250 meV higher binding energy than that of Fe, indicating that Co possesses one extra valence electron and that Fe and Co are in the same oxidation state.Yet, significant Co character is detected for the Bloch wave functions at the chemical potential, revealing that the Co 3d electrons are part of the Fermi sea determining the Fermi surface. This establishes the complex role of Co substitution in CaFe 2As 2 and the inadequacy of a rigid-band shift description.
