Abstract

We investigate the band structure of the inverse perovskite Ca3PbO, a candidate three-dimensional (3D) Dirac fermion material, through soft x-ray angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. Conelike band dispersions are observed for Ca3PbO, in close agreement with the predictions of electronic structure calculations. We further demonstrate that chemical substitution of Bi for Pb is effective in tuning the Fermi level of Ca3PbO while leaving its electronic structure intact. Our study confirms that the inverse perovskite family provides a promising platform for the exploration of 3D Dirac fermion systems.
