Abstract: The spectroscopic techniques of ARPES and spectroscopic STM play a key role in strongly correlated electron research due to their ability to resolve k-space. However, due to their different approaches in obtaining k-space information, the two techniques do not necessarily agree on the observed bandstructure. Here, in an attempt to clear the fog between the two, we present FT-STM results on the rhodate Sr2RhO4 focusing on the comparison between our data and previous ARPES studies on the same sample. We deduce the low-energy bandstructure through the modulations of the LDOS caused by impurity scattering. The Fermi surface area and self-energy are then calculated. We find a flattened dispersion compared to the ARPES result which is shown to be in line with previous FT-STM studies on other correlated electron materials.
