One-dimensional topological insulator nanowires which are proximitized by an s-wave superconductor and are exposed to an in-plane magnetic field are predicted to become topological superconductors [1, 2]. So far, realizing a strong proximity effect in such structures has remained an experimental challenge. In this talk, I present transport spectroscopy results on (Bi,Sb)2Te3 nanowires with Al as parent superconductor. All materials are grown via molecular beam epitaxy in a single growth run consisting of six subsequent deposition steps. To prevent diffusion of Al into (Bi,Sb)2Te3 and creating a transparent interface, we employ a thin diffusion barrier made from Pt. These devices are fabricated using stencil lithography [3] and possess contacts with varying barrier strength made of AlOx. This enables us to study the density of states and therefore to search for topological features within the induced superconducting gap, of which we measure the dependences of different magnetic field directions as well as temperature.
