It is of great interest to create the inversion asymmetric topological insulators because these materials are desirable for hosting both a large Rashba spin-splitting (RSS) and robust topological surface states (TSS), which are potentially interesting in realization of new topological phenomena in practical material systems.
In first part of the talk, I will discuss on the growth of various TIs by modified Bridgman method using rotating heat field [1], by molecular- and gas-phase epitaxy, and in particular built in p-n junction [2] will be considered. Recent results on the BiTeI electronic structure [3,4] transformation forming the asymmetric Bi2Te2I structure with a sequence of intermediate spin-polarized states, reflecting the transition from RSS to a mixed type of states characterized by gapless TSS and preserving RSS will be presented.
In the second part of the talk, I will concentrate on the experimental study of polarized cathodoluminescence induced by low-energy spin-polarized electrons injected into GaAs/AlGaAs QWs structures [5] with the aim to create 3D spin-detector with spatial resolution which can be integrated into the registration channel of modern ARPES systems.
