Bipolaronic Nature of the Pseudogap in Quasi-One-Dimensional (TaSe4)2I Revealed via Weak Photoexcitation
The origin of the pseudogap in many strongly correlated materials has been a longstanding puzzle. Here, we uncover which many-body interactions underlie the pseudogap in quasi-one-dimensional (quasi-1D) material (TaSe4)2I by weak photo-excitation of the material to partially melt the ground state order and thereby reveal the underlying states in the gap. We observe the appearance of both dispersive and flat bands by using time- and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy.
