Abstract

High-quality crystalline (Cr,Sb)-doped Bi2Se3 (Cr-BSS) films were synthesized using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). The effect of Cr- and Sb-doping on the transport and magnetic properties of Cr-BSS films was systematically investigated. The sheet carrier density N2D was found to be reduced to ∼6 × 1012 cm-2 in this quaternary compound at room temperature. This has not previously been observed in a Cr-Bi2Se3-based magnetic topological insulator (TI). Moreover, owing to the Sb dopants, the weak localization (WL)-like positive magnetoconductance in magnetic Cr-Bi2Se3 (Cr-BS) was enhanced. The enhancement is attributed to the emergence of ferromagnetism, as evidenced from the field-dependent Hall resistance and magnetic moment. The obvious tunable electrical and magnetic properties by the Sb dopant in this system are well suited for applications based on magnetic TI devices.
