Suppression of phase separation and giant enhancement of superconducting transition temperature in FeSe(1-x)Te(x) thin films.


ABSTRACT: We demonstrate the successful fabrication on CaF2 substrates of FeSe(1-x)Tex films with 0 ? x ? 1, including the region of 0.1 ? x ? 0.4, which is well known to be the "phase-separation region," via pulsed laser deposition that is a thermodynamically nonequilibrium method. In the resulting films, we observe a giant enhancement of the superconducting transition temperature, Tc, in the region of 0.1 ? x ? 0.4: The maximum value reaches 23 K, which is ? 1.5 times as large as the values reported for bulk samples ofFeSe(1-x)Te(x). We present a complete phase diagram of FeSe(1-x)Te(x) films. Surprisingly, a sudden suppression of Tc is observed at 0:1 < x < 0.2, whereas Tc increases with decreasing x for 0.2 ? x < 1. Namely, there is a clear difference between superconductivity realized in x = 0-0.1 and in x ? 0.2. To obtain a film of FeSe(1-x)Te(x) with high Tc, the controls of the Te content x and the in-plane lattice strain are found to be key factors.
