## Electronic structure and Fermi surface of two-dimensional rare-earth silicides epitaxially grown on Si(111)

### In: Physical Review B, 2004, vol. 69, no. 045312, p. 1-10

The electronic structure and the Fermi surface of two-dimensional rare-earth silicides epitaxially grown on Si(111), YSi2 and GdSi2, have been studied by a combination of angle-resolved ultraviolet photoemission spectroscopy and density functional theory calculations. Both silicides present a very similar electronic structure, with two characteristic electronic bands below... More
