Bismuth and antimony tellurides, Bi2Te3 and Sb2Te3, and the alloys based on these materials play a significant role in thermoelectric technology. Recently these materials became most famous as topological insulators (TIs) with potential applications in spintronics.

Here we report on electronic and magnetic properties of vanadium-doped thin films (10 nm) of (Bi1−xSbx)2Te3 that were grown by molecular beam epitaxy on Si(111) substrates [1]. First-principle calculations predict that vanadium orders ferromagneticaly in Bi2Te3 at sufficiently high concentrations. Due to its non-destructive nature and element-specificity, Resonant X-Ray Reflectivity (RXR) in combination with x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) is an optimal experimental tool to study magnetic and electronic properties of vanadium-doped TIs. XMCD sum rules allow to extract spin and orbital moments separately. The sum rules can be readily applied for the late 3d transition metals, but for the V complex structure of absorption edge complicates deconvolution of the individual L2,3 contributions. To resolve this difficulty we supplement our experimental data with crystal field calculations. [1] S. Grauer et al., Phys. Rev. B 92, 201304(R), 2015.
