|Abstract:||We study the electrical transport properties of ensembles of bismuth telluride (Bi 2Te 3) nanoplates grown by solution based chemical synthesis. Devices consisting of Bi 2Te 3 nanoplates are fabricated by surface treatment after dropping the solution on the structured gold plates and the temperature dependence of resistance shows a nonmetallic behavior. Symmetric tunneling behavior in I-V was observed in both our experimental results and theoretical calculation of surface conductance based on a simple Hamiltonian, which excludes carrier-carrier interactions. Here, we present two devices: one showing symmetric, the other showing a two-step tunneling behavior. The latter can be understood in terms of disorder. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|
