Abstract: We report a high-resolution laser-based angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (laser-ARPES) study of single crystals of FeSe, focusing on the temperature-dependence of the hole-like bands around the Γ point. As the system cools through the tetragonal–orthorhombic “nematic” structural transition at 90 K, the splitting of the dxz/dyz bands is observed to increase by a magnitude of 13 meV. Moreover, the onset of a ∼10 meV downward shift of the dxy band is also observed at 90 K. These measurements provide clarity on the nature, magnitude and temperature-dependence of the band shifts at the Γ point in the nematic phase of FeSe.
