Suppression of Structural Phase Transition in IrTe2 by Isovalent Rh

Kazutaka Kudo, Masakazu Kobayashi, Sunseng Pyon, Minoru Nohara
We report that the isovalent Rh doping of IrTe2 suppresses the structural/electronic phase transition and induces superconductivity at 2.6 K. The doping level of Rh that is necessary for suppressing the transition is three times higher than those of Pt and Pd. Ir1-xRhxTe2 might provide us with a unique opportunity to study the origin of the structural/electronic phase transition in IrTe2.
