We measured by angle-resolved photoemission at low energy the valence band dispersion of BiVO4. The material, a wide-band gap n-type oxide, is a promising photoanode material for water splitting applications. A solar-to-hydrogen efficiency of ~5% was reached wiht a BiVO4 / double juntion a-Si tandem cell device. The bands measured in ARPES experiments are flat, with only a sizeable dispersion measured in the in-plane directions perpendicular to the (010) axis. We found a weak non-dispersive peak in the forbidden gap indicating localised states, which we attribute to point defects. To determine thee origin of the defects, we compared (for different photon energies) the in-gap peak and top-of-valence-band photoemission intensity ratio to the theoretical Mo and oxygen cross-sections. We found that the theory is in quantitative agreement with the experiment and attributed the in-gap peak to the Mo dopant. We discuss the consequences of the Mo states, which change the size and character of the band gap.
