Superconductivity in MBE grown InxSn1−xTe/Bi2Te3 films — •Andrea Bliesener, Junya Feng, Alexey Taskin, and Yoichi Ando — Institute of Physics II, University of Cologne, Germany

InxSn1−xTe is derived from the topological crystalline insulator SnTe which becomes superconducting when doped with Indium and it is one of the top candidates for topological superconductivity [1].

InxSn1−xTe thin films have been grown by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) on a Bi2Te3 buffer layer, which has a good lattice matching for the growth in the (111) direction [2]. Using in situ post-annealing procedures, we achieve robust superconductivity in the grown InxSn1−xTe films.

To look for possible signatures of topological superconductivity in the grown films, we fabricated tunnelling junctions on the surface of the superconducting InxSn1−xTe films. The tunnelling spectroscopy data shows a clear two-gap structure in the measured conductance spectra which points to the coexistence of bulk and surface superconductivity in the studied InxSn1−xTe thin films.
