Electronic-Spectrum of the High-Temperature Superconducting State

Improved experimental conditions enabled us to increase the signal-to-noise ratio of the photoemission spectra for the superconducting state of Bi2Ca2SrCu2O8, taken with high angular and energy resolution. This also enabled us to reveal a pronounced minimum that separates the two basic features of the spectrum, the narrow quasiparticle excitation peak and the still controversial broad band at lower kinetic energies. The minimum is approximately 3-DELTA below the Fermi level.
