摘要:
The interplay between magnetism and superconductivity in Fe-based superconductor systems is currently a subject of intense studies. The iron chalcogenide Fe1+y(Te1-xSex) is of particular interest due to its unique magnetic properties. While the parent compound Fe1+yTe shows antiferromagnetism with (,0) in-plane magnetic wave vector [1], the optimally doped sample displays superconductivity with (p,p) spin resonance [2]. This contrasts with iron pnictides in which both the parent compound’s antiferromagnetism [3-4] and the doped samples’ superconducting (SC) spin resonance [5-7] are characterized by the in-plane Fermi surface nesting wave vector Qn = (p,p). The evolution from (,0) magnetism to superconductivity with (,) spin resonance in iron chalcogenides is associated with coexistence of magnetic correlations at (,0) and (,) [8]. The other remarkable difference between iron chalcogenide and iron pnictide superconductors is their phase diagrams. In iron pnictides, bulk superconductivity either emerges immediately following suppression of long-range (p,p) antiferromagnetic (AFM) order [9-10], or coexists with it in a particular composition range [11-14]. In contrast, in iron chalcogenides, bulk superconductivity does not appear immediately following the suppression of long-range (p,0) AFM order. Instead, an intermediate phase with weak charge carrier localization appears between AFM order and bulk superconductivity for 0.09 < x < 0.3 [8]. In this talk, I will first present an overview on the results summarized above and then introduce our recent studies on the coupling between electronic and magnetic properties in this system [8,15]. I will show the doping dependences of Sommerfeld coefficient , Hall coefficient RH and Hall angle as well as their relations with superconductivity [15].  The origin of superconductivity suppression and charge carrier localization in the underdoped region will be discussed in terms of these experimental results.
