We have studied the temperature (T)-dependent electronic structure near the Fermi level of the layered cobaltate superconductor, Na 0.35CoO 2·1.3H 2O, and related materials, using laser-excited ultrahigh-resolution photoemission spectroscopy. We observe the formation of a pseudogap (PG) with an energy scale of ∼20 meV in Na 0.35CoO 2·1.3H 2O and Na 0.35CoO 2·0.7H 2O, which is clearly absent in Na 0.7CoO 2. The energy scale of the PG is larger than the expected value for the superconducting gap, suggesting an additional competing order parameter at low T. We discuss implications of the PG in relation to available transport and magnetic susceptibility results.
