The superconducting and magnetic properties of FeySe0.25Te0.75 single crystals (0.9≤y≤1.1) were studied by means of x-ray diffraction, superconducting quantum interference device magnetometry, muon-spin rotation, and elastic neutron diffraction. The samples with y<1 exhibit coexistence of bulk superconductivity and incommensurate magnetism. The magnetic order remains incommensurate for y≥1 but with increasing Fe content superconductivity is suppressed and the magnetic correlation length increases. The results show that the superconducting and the magnetic properties of the FeySe1−xTex can be tuned not only by varying the Se/Te ratio but also by changing the Fe content.
