Abstract: BiTeI exhibits large Rashba spin splitting due to its noncentrosymmetric crystal structure. The study of the chemical doping effect is important in order to either tune the Fermi level or refine the crystal quality. Here, we report the magnetotransport measurement in high quality BiTeI single crystals with different copper dopings. We found that a small amount of copper doping improves the crystal quality significantly, which is supported by the transport data showing higher Hall mobility and larger amplitude in Shubnikov-de Haas oscillation at low temperature. Two distinct frequencies in Shubnikov-de Haas oscillation were observed, giving extremal Fermi surface areas of A S=9.1×1012 cm-2 and AL=3.47×1014 cm-2 with corresponding cyclotron masses mS*=0.0353m e and mL*=0.178me, respectively. Those results are further compared with relativistic band structure calculations using three reported Te and I positions. Our analysis infers the crucial role of Bi-Te bond length in the observed large bulk Rashba-type spin-splitting effect in BiTeI. © 2013 American Physical Society.
