Two- or three-dimensional metals are usually well described by weakly interacting, fermionic quasiparticles. This concept breaks down in one dimension due to strong Coulomb interactions. There, low-energy excitations are expected to be collective bosonic modes, which fractionalize into independent spin and charge density waves.
In this talk I will present how we construct a well-isolated, one-dimensional metal of finite length using mirror twin boundaries in molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). We demonstrate how scanning tunneling spectroscopy can identify the unique fingerprints of confined, strongly interacting states, thereby providing a direct and local experimental tool to investigate spin-charge separation in real space.
