Quantum oscillations in metallic ${\mathrm{Sb}}_{2}{\mathrm{Te}}_{2}\mathrm{Se}$ topological insulator
Abstract
Here, we have studied the magnetotransport properties of the metallic, ptype Sb_{2}Te_{2}Se, which is a topological insulator. Magnetoresistance shows Shubnikov–de Haas oscillations in fields above B = 15 T. The maxima and minima positions of oscillations measured at different tilt angles with respect to the B direction align with the normal component of field Bcosθ, implying the existence of a twodimensional Fermi surface in Sb_{2}Te_{2}Se. The value of the Berry phase β determined from a Landau level fan diagram is very close to 0.5, further suggesting that the oscillations result from topological surface states. From LifshitzKosevich analyses, the position of the Fermi level is found to be _{F} = 250 meV, above the Dirac point. This value of _{F} is almost 3 times larger than that in our previous study on the Bi_{2}Se_{2.1}Te_{0.9} topological insulator; however, it still touches the tip of the bulk valence band. This explains the metallic behavior and holelike bulk charge carriers in the Sb_{2}Te_{2}Se compound.
