Single-crystalline nanostructures of β-Ag2Se and Bi2Se3, three-dimensional(3D) topological insulators (TIs), were synthesized using the chemical vapor transport method. The topological surface states were verified by measuring electronic transport properties such as the weak antilocalization effect, Aharonov-Bohm oscillations, and Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations.[1,2] The band inversion in β-Ag2Se is attributed to a strong spin-orbit coupling and Ag-Se bonding hybridization. The superconducting junctions of β-Ag2Se nanostructures were also made using superconducting Al electrodes. Very large supercurrent in the junction enables us to observe the macroscopic quantum tunneling behavior in the narrow junction limit, which is in contrary to the PbS-nanowire-based superconducting junctions. Our observations would provide new meaningful information about 3D TIs, which could be useful for spintronics and superconducting quantum information devices applications.
