The electronic bulk and surface band structure of cubic zinc sulphide (“zinc blende”) has been studied by angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy using synchrotron radiation. The (Formula presented) derived bands along the (Formula presented) high-symmetry direction have been determined, and the region of the Zn (Formula presented) line has been examined. Spectra at fixed photon energy and variation of polar electron emission angle were used to determine the dispersion of the surface states along the (Formula presented) within the surface Brillouin zone. The experimental data for bulk and surface bands are compared with results of a recent density-functional calculation, which includes the interaction between the (Formula presented) and the cation d-derived states.
