Ca(Fe1-xRhx)2As2 undergoes successive phase transitions with increasing Rh doping in the T = 0 limit. The antiferromagnetic-metal phase with orthorhombic structure at 0:00 ≤ x ≤ 0:020 is driven to a superconducting phase with uncollapsed-tetragonal (ucT) structure at 0:020 ≤ x ≤ 0:024; a non-superconducting collapsed-tetragonal (cT) phase takes over at x ≥ 0:024. The breakdown of Fermi-liquid transport is observed in the ucT phase above Tc. In the adjacent cT phase, Fermi-liquid transport is restored along with a disappearance of superconductivity. This interplay of superconductivity and Fermi-liquid transport suggests the essential role of magnetic fluctuations in the emergence of superconductivity in doped CaFe2As2.
