Abstract

We determined the crystal structural parameters of FeSe 1-xTe x(x = 0:5, 0.625, 0.75, 0.875) and FeSe by using the neutron powder diffraction technique. It was found that the superconducting transition temperature T c of Fe 1-xTe x increased with the (S e, T e)-F e-(S e, T e) bond angle a in the Te-doped samples. However, T c of F eS e did not exhibit a similar relation. In order to explain this contradiction, we studied the temperature dependence of the z position of chalcogens, which is strongly coupled to the spin fluctuation by theoretical calculations. The z position in F eS e showed a remarkable shift, indicating that strong spin fluctuation can affect the superconductivity in F eS e.
