Electronic order recently emerged as a general ingredient of unconventional superconductivity. A prominent example is the checkerboard electronic order, present in the pseudo-gap regime of the cuprates.
Lately, a new type of electronic order, lacking magnetic order has been reported in Li doped NaFeAs. We performed spectroscopic imaging scanning tunneling microscopy to reveal this new electronic order in real space and to clarify its relation with the nematic and superconducting phases. We present here evidence of electronic order that strikingly resembles the checkerboard order in the cuprates. Our finding thus constitutes the first example of this type of order in the iron-based superconductor (IBS). We characterize the associated q-vector equal to ∼0.182π/aFe and discuss it in the context of further evidence of electronic order in the IBS.
