Recently discovered, Topological Insulators (TIs) have garnered enormous amount of attention owing to its unique surface properties which has potential applications in the field of spintronics and other modern technologies. For all this, it should require a very good quality samples. There are a number of techniques suggested by people for the growth of good quality TIs. Here, we are reporting the growth of high quality single crystals of Bi2Se3 (a TI) by slow cooling solid-state reaction method. X-ray diffraction measurements performed on a cleaved flake of single crystal Bi2Se3 showed up with proper orientations of the crystal planes. High energy X-ray diffraction has been performed to confirm the stoichiometry of the compound and also recorded Laue patterns prove the single crystalline nature of Bi2Se3. Moreover, angle resolved photo-emission spectroscopy (ARPES) carried out on a flat crystal flake shows distinct Dirac dispersion of surface bands at the gamma point clarifying it as a 3D topological insulator.
