Magnetic oscillations of Dirac surface states of topological insulators are typically expected to be associated with the formation of Landau levels or the Aharonov-Bohm effect. We instead study the conductance of Dirac surface states subjected to an in-plane magnetic field in the presence of a barrier potential. Strikingly, we find that, in the case of large barrier potentials, the surface states exhibit pronounced oscillations in the conductance when varying the magnetic field, in the absence…

Observation of the universal magnetoelectric effect in a 3D topological insulator

In high external magnetic fields, a universal Faraday rotation angle equal to the fine structure constant α=e2/2hc is observed when a linearly polarized THz radiation of a certain frequency passes through the two surfaces of a strained HgTe 3D TI.
