Studies on three-dimensional topological insulators focus mainly on the well-known systems of Bi2Se3 and Bi2Te3 and the related ternary compounds. Theoretical predictions of chalcogenides as topological insulators with a single Dirac cone [1] include an additional compound, Sb2Te3. There, due to p-type doping of the available samples, the Dirac point lies above the Fermi level, making it inaccessible to photoemission experiments unless the surface is modified with an adsorbate [2]. Consequently, the electronic structure of this system has been left almost unstudied.

We present spin- and angle-resolved inverse-photoemission measurements of the unoccupied electronic states of Sb2Te3. In addition to the Dirac state, further spin-dependent features have been obtained which show a distinct Rashba splitting. The experimental data will be discussed along with bandstructure calculations.
