Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) is a powerful technique in probing the electronic structure, energy gap and many-body effects in high temperature superconductors and other materials. In their Feature Article on pp. 2674–2692, Zhou et al. report on the development of vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) laser-based photoemission techniques, including angle-resolved, spin-resolved, time-of-flight electron energy analyzer-based techniques. They highlight recent results on high temperature superconductors utilizing the state-of-theart VUV laser-based ARPES. As illustrated by the cover image, low-energy and high-energy kinks and fine electronic structures are revealed with unprecedentedly super-high precision.
