Magnetism and superconductivity in iron pnictides and iron chalcogenides

Abstract:

This thesis presents a study on several series of unconventional Fe-based superconductors; namely, derivatives of NaFeAs and LiFeAs, as well as molecular-intercalated FeSe. Primarily using muon spin rotation (SR), but also x-ray diffraction (XRD) and magnetic susceptibility measurements, the nature of both magnetic and superconducting phases within these systems is studied. Particular attention is focussed on how these states compete or coexist with one another.

The aforementioned e...
