Abstract

The relevance of magnetic, structural, orbital, and charge degrees of freedom in the iron-based superconductors (FeSCs) and related materials occupies a central focus in condensed matter physics. While the majority of iron-based materials exhibit the same two-dimensional iron square lattice structural motif, a family of AFe2X3 (X = Se,S) compounds introduces a quasi-one-dimensional (1D) ladder motif, which resembles the two-legged spin ladder copper oxide materials. Furthermore, unlike most parent compounds of FeSCs, the members of this spin ladder family are insulators. Recently, a superconducting transition has been observed under pressure with Tc up to 24 K, similar to the pressure-induced superconductivity in the copper oxide ladder Sr14−xCaxCu24O41 material, stimulating much interest. Here, we review the magnetic, structural, and electronic properties in this family, particularly in the BaFe2X3 series tuned by pressure and by chemical substitution. The established pressure-temperature (P-T) and carrier concentration-temperature (x-T) phase diagrams in related materials provide useful information to extend the variety of high-temperature superconductors and compare with other FeSCs. We also review some essential information about analogous square lattice FeSCs.
