Band structure and magnetotransport in strained HgTe — •Jan Böttcher and Ewelina M. Hankiewicz — Universität Würzburg, Faculty for Physics and Astronomy, Am Hubland, D-97074 Würzburg

Strained mercury telluride is a 3D topological insulator with negligible bulk conductivity [1]. Here we report on band structure calculations using a six-band Kane model with a self-consistent Poisson solver. We find that while the surface states lie within the band gap, the Dirac point lies deep in the heavy hole subbands. We study this system as a function of gate voltage and give possible explanations of exciting experimental observations of the Landau level structures in high magnetic fields as well as oscillations in the Shubnikov-de Hass data at low magnetic fields.

We acknowledge financial support via grant HA 5893/4-1 within SPP 1666.
