We report on the optoelectronic properties of thin films of the topological insulator (BixSb1−x)2Te3 grown by molecular beam epitaxy. In spatially resolved experiments, we observe photocurrent patterns with positive and negative amplitude [1]. We interpret the patterns to originate from a local photocurrent generation due to potential fluctuations [1]. Exploiting the local photocurrent generation in combination with a sub 100-nm lithography, we visualize the current flow in nanoscale circuits based on topological insulators [2].
