Ivashko, O; Yang, L; Destraz, D; Martino, E; Chen, Y; Guo, C Y; Yuan, H. Q; Pisoni, A; Matus, P; Pyon, S; Kudo, K; Nohara, M; Forró, L; Rønnow, H M; Hücker, M; v. Zimmermann, M; Chang, J (2017). Charge-stripe order and superconductivity in Ir1−xPtxTe2. Scientific Reports, 7(1):17157.

Abstract

A combined resistivity and hard x-ray diffraction study of superconductivity and charge ordering in Ir Ir1-xPtxTe2, as a function of Pt substitution and externally applied hydrostatic pressure, is presented. Experiments are focused on samples near the critical composition x c  ~ 0.045 where competition and switching between charge order and superconductivity is established. We show that charge order as a function of pressure in Ir0.95Pt0.05Te2 is preempted - and hence triggered - by a structural transition. Charge ordering appears uniaxially along the short crystallographic (1, 0, 1) domain axis with a (1/5, 0, 1/5) modulation. Based on these results we draw a charge-order phase diagram and discuss the relation between stripe ordering and superconductivity.
