Tuning from frustrated magnetism to superconductivity in quasionedimensional ${\mathrm{KCr}}_{3}{\mathrm{As}}_{3}$ through hydrogen doping
Abstract
We report the charge doping of KCr_{3}As_{3} via H intercalation. We show that the previously reported ethanol bath deintercalation of K_{2}Cr_{3}As_{3} to KCr_{3}As_{3} has a secondary effect whereby H from the bath enters the quasionedimensional Cr6As6 chains. Furthermore, we find that—contrary to previous interpretations—the difference between nonsuperconducting asgrown KCr_{3}As_{3} samples and superconducting hydrothermally annealed samples is not a change in crystallinity but due to charge doping, with the latter treatment increasing the H concentration in the CrAs tubes, effectively electron doping the 133 compound. These results suggest another stoichiometry KHxCr_{3}As_{3}, that superconductivity arises from a suppressed magnetic order via a tunable parameter and paves the way for a chargedoped phase diagram in these materials.
