Abstract

We investigated the electron and hole transport in a three-dimensional topological insulator based on a high-mobility (up to 4∙105 cm2/V∙s) strained 80 nm thick mercury telluride film. Owing to the presence of the gate the Fermi energy is turned from the valence band through the Dirac type surface states into the conduction band. The magnetotransport measurements allowed us to disentangle the contributions from conduction band electrons and holes as well as from Dirac electrons to conductivity.
