Abstract

Dirac cones can foster extraordinary electronic effects, as exemplified by the case of graphene layers. Angle-resolved photoemission reveals that adsorption of selenium (Se) vapor on bilayer graphene creates a symmetric hybrid clone of the Dirac cones at the zone center. A detailed analysis aided by first-principles calculations shows that the adsorbed layer consists of an ordered array of Se8 molecules. The uncovered cloning mechanism illustrates a method to generate electronic features of scientific and technological interests by gentle surface modification via van der Waals adsorption.
