The high-resolution photoemission spectroscopy study of single crystalline CeNiSn indicates a finite density of states at EF, implying a semi-metallic ground state. This finding is supported by the lineshape analysis using the DOS models. The Ce 4f spectrum exhibits three peak structures, in which the peak near-EF is found to reflect a substantially large Ce 4f-Sn sp hybridization.
