A fundamental concept in solid state physics describes the electrons in a solid by the relation of the energy E vs. the crystal momentum k in a band structure of independent quasi particles. However, even for the most simple elemental ferromagnets, electron correlations are prevalent, requiring descriptions of their electronic structure beyond this simple single-electron picture. Our comprehensive measurements of the spectral-function by spin-resolved momentum microscopy show that in itinerant ferromagnets like cobalt these electron correlations are of nonlocal origin. This manifests in a complex self-energy Σσ(E,k) that disperses as function of spin σ, energy E, and momentum k. Combining the experiments with one-step photoemission calculations, we quantify the dispersion of the self-energy over the whole Brillouin zone [1]. The observation of nonlocal electron correlations in cobalt substantially affects our understanding of electron interactions, and makes itinerant ferromagnets a paradigmatic test case for the interplay between band structure, magnetism, and correlations.
