We report the observation of prominent Shubnikovde Haas oscillations in a Topological Insulator, Bi 2Te 2Se, with large bulk resistivity (6Ωcm at 4 K). By fitting the SdH oscillations, we infer a large metallicity parameter kFℓ=41, with a surface mobility ( μs∼2800 cm2/Vs) much larger than the bulk mobility ( μb∼50 cm2/Vs). The plot of the index fields vs. filling factor ν shows a 12-shift, consistent with massless, Dirac states.
