Spin splitting of surface states in HgTe quantum wells
We report on beating appearance in Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations in conduction band of 18-22nm HgTe quantum wells under applied top-gate voltage. Analysis of the beatings reveals two electronExpand
Superradiant and transport lifetimes of the cyclotron resonance in the topological insulator HgTe
We investigate the superradiance effects in three-dimensional topological insulator HgTe with conducting surface states. We demonstrate that the superradiance can be explained using the classicalExpand
Topological insulators based on HgTe
The most interesting experimental results obtained in studies of 2D and 3D topological insulators (TIs) based on HgTe quantum wells and films are reviewed. In the case of 2D TIs, these include theExpand
Robust level coincidences in the subband structure of quasi-2D systems
Recently, level crossings in the energy bands of crystals have been identified as a key signature for topological phase transitions. Using realistic models we show that the parameter spaceExpand
Cyclotron resonance in a two-dimensional semimetal based on a HgTe quantum well
Microwave cyclotron resonance of electrons and holes at the metal-to-semimetal transition in HgTe quantum wells with an inversed band structure has been investigated. The resonance has been studiedExpand
Quantum Hall effect from the topological surface states of strained bulk HgTe.
A three-dimensional, 70-nm-thick HgTe layer, which is strained by epitaxial growth on a CdTe substrate, exhibits a quantized Hall effect that results from the 2D single cone Dirac-like topological surface states. Expand
Mobility of Dirac electrons in HgTe quantum wells
The mobility of Dirac electrons (DEs) in HgTe quantum wells with the thickness close to the critical value corresponding to the transition from the direct to inverted spectrum has been studiedExpand
Terahertz magneto-optical spectroscopy in HgTe thin films
Thin films of HgTe have been systematically investigated using continuous frequency terahertz spectroscopy in external magnetic fields. In these experiments, full control of the polarization stateExpand
Interplay of Rashba/Dresselhaus spin splittings probed by photogalvanic spectroscopy –A review
The paper reviews the interplay of Rashba/Dresselhaus spin splittings in various two-dimensional systems made of zinc-blende III–V, wurtzite, and SiGe semiconductors. We discuss the symmetry aspectsExpand
Two-dimensional semimetal in HgTe-based quantum wells with surface orientation (100)
Abstract A 2D semimetal has been observed in 20 nm HgTe quantum wells with (100) surface orientation. At the charge neutrality point the hole and electron density were determined as N s = P s ≈ 1.2 ×Expand
