In recent experiments, the spatially non-split zero-energy vortex bound state in topological superconductors has been regarded as an essential spectroscopic signature for the observation of MBSs. Here, we report the observation of anisotropic non-split zero-energy vortex bound states in a conventional elemental superconductor with a topologically trivial band structure using scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy. The experimental results, corroborated by quasi-classical theoretical calculations, indicate that the non-split states directly reflect the quasiparticle trajectories governed by the surface electronic structure. Our study implies that non-split zero-energy states are not a conclusive signature of MBSs in vortex cores, in particular for superconducting systems not being in the quantum limit, stimulating a revision of the current understanding of such states.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Nagai, Yuki</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Kim, Howon</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Nagai, Yuki</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Wiesendanger, Roland</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Wiesendanger, Roland</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2021</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-12-09T09:13:34Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Schreyer, Dominik</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Rózsa, Levente</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Kim, Howon</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Anisotropic non-split zero-energy vortex bound states in a conventional superconductor</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-12-09T09:13:34Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Rózsa, Levente</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Schreyer, Dominik</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
