We report on the observation of terahertz (THz) laser radiation induced currents in epitaxially grown Sb2Te3 based topological insulators (TI) [1]. We demonstrate that the excitation of the sample with linearly polarized THz radiation results in a photoresponse solely stemming from the surface states of the 3D TI. Our analysis shows that the photocurrent is caused by the photogalvanic effect [2], which emerges in the surface states but is forbidden in the centrosymmetric bulk material. As an important result our measurements demonstrate that the high frequency transport can be obtained in the Dirac fermion system even at room temperature.
