Probing the Superconductor / Quantum Anomalous Hall Interface — •Anjana Uday1, Gertjan Lippertz1,2, Andrea Bliesener1, Alexey Taskin1, and Yoichi Ando11University of Cologne, Cologne, Germany — 2KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium

Recently, crossed Andreev conversion was reported in a hybrid quantum Hall (QH) / Superconductor (SC) system [1]. The evidence was based on the observation of a negative downstream resistance RD in a three-terminal measurement of a Hall-bar device with respect to the grounded SC electrode. Similar experiments would be of great interest in the quantum anomalous Hall (QAH) / SC hybrid system, where superconductivity can be suppressed for control experiments by applying a magnetic field while keeping the 1D edge state unchanged. We fabricated Hall-bar devices from V-doped (BixSb1−x)2Te3 thin films contacted with Nb electrodes having various widths. We found a finite positive RD which increases with decreasing the widths of the SC electrode due to the QAH breakdown mechanism [2]. We also found a clear increase in RD upon killing the superconductivity with a magnetic field for Nb electrodes narrower than 200 nm; this can be attributed to either non-local Andreev reflections on top of the breakdown-induced finite RD or local Andreev reflections on the 2D normal metal/SC interface, which can be created by the charge transfer from the Nb electrode to the gapped VBST surface state. In both cases our observation implies a high transparency of the SC/QAH interface.
