Abstract: We present a comprehensive angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy study of Ca 1.8 Sr 0.2 RuO 4 . Four distinct bands are revealed and along the Ru-O bond direction their orbital characters are identified through a light polarization analysis and comparison to dynamical mean-field theory calculations. Bands assigned to d x z , d y z orbitals display Fermi liquid behavior with fourfold quasiparticle mass renormalization. Extremely heavy fermions—associated with a predominantly d x y band character—are shown to display non-Fermi-liquid behavior. We thus demonstrate that Ca 1.8 Sr 0.2 RuO 4 is a hybrid metal with an orbitally selective Fermi liquid quasiparticle breakdown.
