Transition-metal doped Bi2Se3 and Bi2Te3 topological insulator thin films

Abstract:

Topological insulators (TIs) are recently predicted, and much studied, new quantum materials. These materials are characterised by their unique surface electronic properties; namely, behaving as band insulators within their bulk, but with spin-momentum locked surface or edge states at their interface. These surface/edge crossing states are protected by the underlying time-reversal symmetry (TRS) of the bulk band structure, leading to a robust topological surface state (TSS) that is resista...
