Abstract

We report the comprehensive studies between synchrotron X-ray diffraction, electrical resistivity and magnetic susceptibility experiments for the iron arsenides Ca n(n+1)/2 (Fe 1-x Pt x) (2+3n) Pt n(n-1)/2 As (n+1)(n+2)/2 for n = 2 and 3. Both structures crystallize in the monoclinic space group P2 1/m (#11) with three-dimensional FeAs structures. The horizontal FeAs layers are bridged by inclined FeAs planes through edge-sharing FeAs5 square pyramids, resulting in triangular tunneling structures rather than the simple layered structures found in conventional iron arsenides. n = 3 system shows a sign of superconductivity with a small volume fraction. Our first-principles calculations of these systems clearly indicate that the Fermi surfaces originate from strong Fe-3d characters and the three-dimensional nature of the electric structures for both systems, thus offering the playgrounds to study the effects of dimensionality on high T c superconductivity.
