High-resolution angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy at low temperature has been performed on the low-carrier Kondo material CeP. It was found that the p-f bonding state with a dominant 4f character exhibits a finite-energy dispersion of about 40 meV along the ΓX direction in the Brillouin zone. This implies that 4f electrons in CeP form a narrow band owing to the strong anisotropic p-f and d-f mixing.
