We present a detailed study of the electron transport properties of a thin Bi2Te3 film on Si(111). Bi2Te3 is a prototype system of so called three dimensional topological insulators. Such materials are insulating inside their bulk while they provide a metallic state on their surface which is protected by the materials topology [1]. The nanoscale transport field of the Bi2Te3 surface was studied by scanning tunneling potentiometry (STP), an extension of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) which allows us to analyze the microscopic topography and the correlated microscopic electrochemical potential of the surface simultaneously [2]. The STP analysis shows that morphological features like step edges and grain boundaries are barriers for conduction electrons. The conductivity of step edges and grain boundaries were determined to 700 S/cm and 350 S/cm in the surface state, confirming former STP studies [3,4].
