Quantum Oscillations in a Topological Insulator Bi2Te2Se with Large Bulk Resistivity (6 Ω cm)
We report the observation of prominent Shubnikovde Haas oscillations in a Topological Insulator, Bi2Te2Se, with large bulk resistivity (6Ωcm at 4 K). By fitting the SdH oscillations, we infer a large metallicity parameter kF?=41, with a surface mobility ( μs~2800 cm2/Vs) much larger than the bulk mobility ( μb~50 cm2/Vs). The plot of the index fields Bν vs. filling factor ν shows a 12-shift, consistent with massless, Dirac states.
