Title: Dome of magnetic order inside the nematic phase of sulfur-substituted FeSe under pressure

The pressure dependence of the structural, magnetic, and superconducting transitions and of the superconducting upper critical field were studied in sulfur-substituted Fe ( Se 1 - x S x ) . We performed resistance measurements on single crystals with three substitution levels ( x = 0.043 , 0.096, 0.12) under hydrostatic pressures up to 1.8 GPa and in magnetic fields up to 9 T and were compared to data on pure FeSe. Our results illustrate the effects of chemical and physical pressure on Fe ( Se 1 - x S x ). Furthermore, on increasing sulfur content, magnetic order in the low-pressure range is strongly suppressed to a small domelike region in the phase diagrams. But, T s is much less suppressed by sulfur substitution, and T c of Fe ( Se 1 - x S x ) exhibits similar nonmonotonic pressure dependence with a local maximum and a local minimum present in the low-pressure range for all x . The local maximum in T c coincides with the emergence of the magnetic order above T c . At this pressure the slope of the upper critical field decreases abruptly, which may indicate a Fermi-surface reconstruction. The minimum of Tmore » c correlates with a broad maximum of the upper critical field slope normalized by T c .« less
