Title: Spin excitations in optimally P-doped BaFe 2 ( As 0.7 P 0.3 ) 2 superconductor

We use inelastic neutron scattering to study temperature and energy dependence of spin excitations in optimally P-doped BaFe 2(As 0:7P 0:3) 2 superconductor (T c = 30 K) throughout the Brillouin zone. In the undoped state, spin waves and paramagnetic spin excitations of BaFe 2As 2 stem from antiferromagnetic (AF) ordering wave vector QAF = ( 1; 0) and peaks near zone boundary at ( 1; 1) around 180 meV. Replacing 30% As by smaller P to induce superconductivity, low-energy spin excitations of BaFe 2(As 0:7P 0:3) 2 form a resonance in the superconducting state and high-energy spin excitations now peaks around 220 meV near ( 1; 1). These results are consistent with calculations from a combined density functional theory and dynamical mean field theory, and suggest that the decreased average pnictogen height in BaFe 2(As 0:7P 0:3) 2 reduces the strength of electron correlations and increases the effective bandwidth of magnetic excitations.
