Abstract

The bulk electronic properties of compensated topological insulators are strongly affected by the self-organized formation of charge puddles at low temperature, but their response in the microwave frequency range is little studied. We employed broadband impedance spectroscopy up to 5 GHz to address the ac transport properties of well-compensated BiSbTeSe2, where charge puddles are known to form as metallic entities embedded in an insulating host. It turns out that the average puddle size sets the characteristic frequency v e in the gigahertz range, across which the insulating dc behavior is separated from a metal-like high-frequency response of delocalized carriers within the puddles. This nu(c) is found to be controlled by a magnetic field, giving rise to a large positive magnetoconductivity observable only in the gigahertz range. This curious phenomenon is driven by the Zeeman energy which affects the local band filling in the disordered potential landscape to enhance the puddle size.
