Using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy it is revealed that in the vicinity of optimal doping the electronic structure of La2−xSrxCuO4 cuprate undergoes an electronic reconstruction associated with a wave vector qa=(π,0). The reconstructed Fermi surface and folded band are distinct to the shadow bands observed in BSCCO cuprates and in underdoped La2−xSrxCuO4 with x≤0.12, which...
