    Abstract

    The surface states on the LaB6(100), (110) and (111) clean surfaces have been studied by means of angle-resolved UV photoelectron spectroscopy with unpolarized light. Surface states on LaB6(110) and (111) have been observed for the first time, and the energy-band structures have been determined. The surface states on LaB6(110) are located at ∼1.8 and ∼3.0 eV below EF. They are associated with the occurrence of the c(2 × 2) surface structure on LaB6(110). The surface states on LaB6(111) are located at ∼1.5 and ∼2 eV below EF. The dispersion of the lower band is relatively large (∼0.9 eV) compared with those on LaB6(100) and (110). The surface state at ∼2 eV below EF on LaB6(111) has a maximum energy at Γ point (k∥ = 0), while that on LaB6(100) has a minimum energy at Γpoint. The surface state at ∼2 eV below EFon LaB6(100) possesses Δ1 symmetry at k∥ = 0, and has even parity with respect to the (010) and (011) planes. The surface state at ∼1.8 eV below EF on LaB6(110) has even parity with respect to the (11̄0) plane, and odd parity with respect to the (001) plane. The surface state at ∼3.0 eV below EF has even parity with respect to both the (11̄0) and (001) planes. The low-lying surface state on LaB6(111) has Δ1 symmetry at k∥ = 0. All these surface states on the LaB6 clean surfaces are interpreted in terms of dangling bonds of the surface boron frameworks which are mainly B 2p in character.
