Abstract (English)

In this thesis, a number of transport effects in topological insulator nanostructures are investigated. A novel wet-chemical etching approach enabled the fabrication of high-quality nanostructures from strained HgTe thin films and CdTe/HgTe quantum wells and the investigations of topological boundary states in HgTe-based 2D and 3D topological insulators. Measurements of Hall bars, Aharonov-Bohm ...

In dieser Arbeit wird eine Reihe von Transporteffekten in topologischen Isolator-Nanostrukturen untersucht. Ein nasschemischer Ätzprozess ermöglicht die Herstellung hochwertiger Nanostrukturen aus verspannten HgTe und CdTe/HgTe-Quantentrögen, sowie die Untersuchung topologischer Oberflächenzuständen in HgTe-basierten 2D- und 3D topologischen Isolatoren. Messungen an Hall-Bars, ...
