STM and STS studies of superconducting 1T-TaSeS — •Marion A. van Midden1, Yaroslav Gerasimenko1,2, Petra Šutar1, Erik Zupanič1, and Dragan Mihailovic1,21Jožef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia — 2Center of Excellence in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Ljubljana, Slovenia

In 1T-TaS2, similarly to many high-temperature superconductors, superconductivity, charge density waves (CDW) and Mott insulating (MI) states coexist. The MI state is suppressed upon doping [1], substitution [2] or pressure [3]. Until recently, it has been believed that this, together with the formation of CDW domain walls, is crucial for the onset of superconductivity. However, recent studies at T > TSC have challenged this hypothesis in 1T-TaS2 and 1T-TaSexS2−x [4].

We study superconducting 1T-TaSeS close to optimal TSC = 3.5 K using high-resolution scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS) both below and above TSC. In contrast to pure 1T-TaS2 we observe a finite density of states inside the Mott gap both inside the domains and at the domain walls. STS at T = 1.2 K shows a small 1-2 meV gap at the Fermi level that vanishes at T > 5K, strongly suggesting it is related to SC. It is clearly uncorrelated with the CDW domain walls of any kind in clear contrast with the simple domain wall picture. This suggest a different, correlated picture of SC onset.
