In this study, we systematically investigate three-dimensional(3D) momentum-resolved electronic structures of Ruddlesden-Popper-type iridium oxides Sr$$_{n+1}$$Ir$$_{n}$$O$$_{3n+1}$$ using soft-X-ray angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (SX-ARPES). Our results provide direct evidence of an insulator-to-metal transition that occurs upon increasing the dimensionality of the IrO$$_{2}$$-plane structure. This transition occurs when the spin-orbit-coupled $$j_{eff}$$ = 1/2 band changes its behavior in the dispersion relation and moves across the Fermi energy. By scanning the photon energy over 350 eV, we reveal the 3D Fermi surface in SrIrO$$_{3}$$ and $$k_{z}$$-dependent oscillations of photoelectron intensity in Sr$$_{3}$$Ir$$_{2}$$O$$_{7}$$. To corroborate the physics deduced using low-energy ARPES studies, we propose to utilize SX-ARPES as a powerful complementary technique, as this method surveys more than one whole Brillouin zone and provides a panoramic view of electronic structures.

Anomalous metallic state in the vicinity of metal to valence-bond solid insulator transition in LiVS$$_{2}$$

Katayama, Naoyuki*; Uchida, Masaya*; Hashizume, Daisuke*; Niitaka, Seiji*; Matsuno, Jobu*; Matsumura, Daiju; Nishihata, Yasuo; Mizuki, Junichiro; Takeshita, Nao*; Gauzzi, A.*; et al.

We investigate LiVS$$_{2}$$ and LiVSe$$_{2}$$ with a triangular lattice as itinerant analogues of LiVO$$_{2}$$ known for the formation of a valence-bond solid (VBS) state out of an S = 1 frustrated magnet. LiVS$$_{2}$$, which is located at the border between a metal and a correlated insulator, shows a first order transition from a paramagnetic metal to a VBS insulator at T$$_{c}$$ $$sim$$ 305 K upon cooling. The presence of a VBS state in the close vicinity of insulator-metal transition may suggest the importance of itinerancy in the formation of a VBS state. We argue that the high temperature metallic phase of LiVS$$_{2}$$ has a pseudogap, likely originating from the VBS fluctuation. LiVSe$$_{2}$$ was found to be a paramagnetic metal down to 2 K.

Local structure anomaly around Ge dopants in Mn$$_{3}$$Cu$$_{0.7}$$Ge$$_{0.3}$$N with negative thermal expansion

Local structure analysis of Cu and Ge atoms in the negative thermal expansion material Mn$$_{3}$$Cu$$_{0.7}$$Ge$$_{0.3}$$N was conducted using X-ray absorption fine structure measurements. The temperature dependence of the interatomic distance was found to reflect the macroscopic negative thermal expansion both for Cu-Mn and Ge-Mn shells, although the magnitude of the relative change was much larger for Ge-Mn than Cu-Mn. An enhanced anomaly of the Debye-Waller factor was observed for the Ge-Mn shell in the temperature region of the negative expansion, indicating the presence of static local disorder around Ge impurities. These local structure anomalies strongly suggest that the local and inhomogeneous strain around Ge is essential in broadening the discontinuous volume contraction.
