AbstractThe ab initio calculations of the electronic structure in the bulk and at the (0001) surface of narrow-band Bi2Se3, Sb2Te3, Sb2STe3, and Sb2SeTe2 semiconductors have been performed. It has been shown that ternary compounds Sb2STe2 and Sb2SeTe2, as well as the previously known compounds Bi2Se3 and Sb2Te3, are three-dimensional topological insulators. The influence of the subsurface van der Waals gap expansion on the surface electronic structure of these compounds has been analyzed. It has been shown that this expansion leads to the formation of new (trivial) surface states, namely a parabolic state in the conduction band and an M-shaped state in the valence band. These results explain the phenomena discovered recently in photoemission experiments and reveal the nature of new states that are caused by the adsorption of atoms on the surfaces of the layered topological insulators. © 2011 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
