Angle-resolved photoemission was used to study the surface electronic band structure of high quality single crystals of ferromagnetic CoS2 (below 120 K). Strongly dispersing Co t2g bands are identified along the 100 k direction, the ¯–¯X line of the surface Brillouin zone, in agreement with model calculations. The calculated surface band structure includes corrections for the previously determined surface structure of CoS2(001) and is in general agreement with the experimental photoemission spectra in the region of the Fermi level. There is evidence of the existence of several minority spin surface states, falling into a gap of the projected minority spin bulk CoS2(001) band structure.
