XAS/XMCD study of magnetically doped (Bi,Sb)2Te3 — •Abdul-Vakhab Tcakaev, Volodymyr Zabolotnyy, Steffen Schreyeck, Karl Brunner, Charles Gould, and Vladimir Hinkov — University Würzburg, Am Hubland, 97074 Würzburg
The magnetic topological insulators Cr:(BiSb)2Te3 and V:(BiSb)2Te3 have been extensively studied as realizations of the quantum anomalous Hall (QAH) effect. While the QAH state in V-doped films is found to be significantly superior, the differences in the electronic structure and in the mechanisms of magnetic ordering for V- and Cr-doping remain under intensive debate. Here we combine x-ray absorption(XAS) and x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) to trace element-specific contributions to the electronic and magnetic properties of these systems. We use ab initio density functional theory (DFT) based multiplet ligand field theory calculations (MLFT) at Cr and V L2,3 edges for understanding and interpreting experimental results and determine local electronic and magnetic properties of these topological insulators.
