Spin-split surface state above the Fermi level on Ta(110) — •Bernd Engelkamp1, Henry Wortelen1, Jürgen Henk2, Anke B.

Recent experimental and theoretical photoemission studies on W(110) have been focused on a spin-polarized Dirac-cone-like surface state within a spin-orbit-induced symmetry gap [1, 2]. Browsing the periodic table for another heavy element with bcc structure yields only tantalum. On Ta(110), with one valence electron less compared to W(110), the spin-orbit-induced symmetry gap is expected above the Fermi level.

Using spin- and angle-resolved inverse photoemission we identified a spin-split surface state along the Γ-H direction. We present our experimental results in combination with spectral density calculations in both high-symmetry directions Γ-H and Γ-N.
