AbstractBeryllium has recently been discovered to harbor a Dirac nodal line (DNL) in its bulk phase and the DNL-induced nontrivial surface states (DNSSs) on its (0001) surface, rationalizing several already-existing historic puzzles [Phys. Rev. Lett. 117, 096401 (2016)]. However, to date the underlying mechanism as to why its (0001) surface exhibits an anomalously large electron-phonon coupling effect (lambda(s)(e-ph) approximate to 1.0) remains unresolved. Here, by means of first-principles calculations, we show that the coupling of the DNSSs with the phononic states mainly contributes to its novel surface e-ph enhancement. Besides the fact that the experimentally observed lambda(s)(e-ph) and the main Eliashberg coupling function (ECF) peaks are reproduced well in our current calculations, we decompose the ECF alpha F-2(k, q; v) and the e-ph coupling strength lambda(k, q; v) as a function of each electron momentum (k), each phonon momentum (q), and each phonon mode (v), evidencing the robust connection between the DNSSs and both alpha F-2(k, q; v) and lambda(k, q; v). The results reveal the strong e-ph coupling between the DNSSs and the phonon modes, which contributes over 80% of the lambda(s)(e-ph) coefficient on the Be (0001) surface. It highlights that the anomalously large e-ph coefficient on the Be (0001) surface can be attributed to the presence of its DNL-induced DNSSs, clarifying the long-debated mechanism.
