The low temperature (T < 5 K) electron spin resonance in topological Kondo insulator SmB6 is investigated. It is shown that spin relaxation time of the paramagnetic centers responsible for low temperature electron spin resonance in SmB6 is about ~ 10−8 s, which exceeds by five orders of magnitude the widely accepted spin and charge fluctuation time ~ 10−13 s in the homogeneous mixed valence state of this material. This discrepancy may be attributed to the formation of the specific paramagnetic centers in the sample surface–spin polarons.

A nonstationary anomalous Hall current is calculated for a voltage biased Josephson junction, which is composed of two s-wave superconducting contacts deposited on the top of a three-dimensional topological insulator (TI). A homogeneous Zeeman field was assumed at the surface of the TI. The problem has been considered within the ballistic approximation and on the ...

В работе исследовалась магнетопроводимость тонких пленок Bi2Se3 с защитным слоем Se, выра щенных на подложках (111) BaF2. Наблюдаемая отрицательная магнетопроводимость в малых полях, обусловленная эффектом слабой антилокализации, так же как и осцилляции Шубникова–де Гааза в больших полях, определяется только перпендикулярной к плоскости пленки компонентой магнитного поля. Полученные экспериментальные результаты могут быть разумно объяснены в предположении на личия в исследуемых пленках ...

We report preparation of nanoribbons (crossection ~ 250*25 nm2) by focused ion beam etching of single-crystalline Bi2Se3 and detailed measurements of their magnetoresistance at temperatures down to 4.2 K, magnetic field up to 9 T. In a magnetic field parallel to the axis of nanowire the magnetoresistance shows up oscillations. Surprisingly, the Fourier analysis shows ...

Structural, magnetic and magnetotransport properties of (Bi1-xEux)2Se3 thin films have been studied experimentally as a function of Eu content. The films were synthesized by MBE. It is demonstrated that Eu distribution is not uniform, it enter quint-layers forming inside them plain (pancake-like) areas containing Eu atoms, which sizes and concentration increase with the growth of Eu content.

Randomness and frustration are believed to be two crucial criteria for the formation of spin glass state. However, the spin freezing occurs in some well-ordered crystals below the related temperature Tf due to the instability of each spin state, which induces the variation of either magnetic moment value or exchange energy. Here we explore the ...

We explore a combined effect of hexagonal warping and a finite effective mass on both the tunneling density of electronic surface states and the structure of Landau levels of 3D topological insulators. We find the increasing warping to transform the square-root van Hove singularity into a logarithmic one. For moderate warping, an additional logarithmic singularity ...

We study the effect of the Fermi surface anisotropy (hexagonal warping) on the superconducting pair potential, induced in a three-dimensional topological insulator (TI) by proximity with an s-wave superconductor (S) in presence of a magnetic moment of a nearby ferromagnetic insulator (FI). In the previous studies similar problem was treated with a simplified Hamiltonian, describing ...

Bi2Te3 is a material with high efficiency of thermoelectric energy conversion. Recently, it was also recognized as a topological insulator, and is often used as the basis for creation of other types of topological matter. Pulsed laser deposition (PLD) is widely considered as a simple method for growing of multicomponent films, but not as a tool for van der Waals epitaxy. We ...

It is shown that the spin-orbit and Zeeman interactions result in phase shifts of Andreev-reflected holes propagating at the surface of a topological insulator, or in Rashba spin-orbit-coupled two dimensional normal metals, which are in a contact with an s-wave superconductor. Due to interference of holes reflected through different paths of Andreev interferometer the electric current through external contacts ...

Search for doped superconducting topological insulators is of prime importance for new quantum technologies. We report on fabrication of Sr-doped Bi2Te3 single crystals. We found that Bridgman grown samples have p-type conductivity in the low 10^19 cm^(−3), high mobility of 4000 cm^2*V^(−1)s^(−1), crystal structure independent on nominal dopant content, and no signs of superconductivity. We also studied molecular ...

A nonuniform in-plane Zeeman field can induce spontaneous supercurrents of spin-orbit-coupled electrons in superconducting two-dimensional systems and thin films. In this work it is shown that current vortices can be created at the ends of a long homogeneously magnetized strip of a ferromagnetic insulator, which is deposited on the surface of a three-dimensional topological insulator. The s-wave superconductivity ...

Weyl semimetal is a three-dimensional material with a conical spectrum near an even number of point nodes, where two bands touch each other.

Superconducting hybrid structures with topological order and induced magnetization offer a promising way to realize fault-tolerant quantum computation. However, the effect of the interplay between magnetization and the property of the topological insulator surface, otherwise known as spin-momentum locking on the superconducting proximity effect, still remains to be investigated. We relied on the quasiclassical self-consistent ...

The phase of quantum magneto-oscillations is often associated with the Berry phase and is widely used to argue in favor of topological nontriviality of the system (Berry phase 2πn + π). Nevertheless, the experimentally determined value may deviate from 2πn + π arbitrarily, therefore more care should be made analyzing the phase of magneto-oscillations to distinguish trivial systems ...

Spatial anisotropy generated spontaneously in the translationally invariant metallic phase, i.e. electron nematic efect, addresses a great challenge for both experimentalists and theoreticians. An interesting option for the realization of the electron nematic phase is provided by the system with orbital ordering, as long as both orbitally ordered states and electron nematic phases possess broken ...

Materials that possess strong spin-orbit interaction have provoked great interest over the past few years, in particular, in the actively developing field of quantum calculations. A topological insulator is a good example of such a material. The topological insulator has high surface conductivity, whereas in the body it shows the properties of an insulator, this being a purely ...

We consider Majorana zero modes in a Josephson junction on top of a topological insulator in transverse magnetic field. Majorana zero modes reside at periodically located nodes of Josephson vortices. We find that hybridization of these modes is prohibited by symmetries of the problem at vanishing chemical potential, which ensures better protection of zero modes ...

The formation of nanosized charge droplets in the bulk of a three-dimensional topological insulator Bi1.08Sn0.02Sb0.9Te2S was evidenced using electron spin resonance. Since electrons and holes are “locked” in these droplets far apart from each other, their participation in bulk conductivity is possible only due to thermal activation or to variable range hopping. Our transport measurements give evidence that ...
