Original Paper


We perform oxygen doping experiments in the CaFeAsF and CaFe0.88Co0.12AsF compounds. In the parent compound CaFeAsF, partial replacement of F by O leads to an increase of resistivity and a weakening of spin-density wave transition, indicating that the out-of-plane disorder strongly affects the electronic and magnetic properties of the system. In the CaFe0.88Co0.12AsF1−x O x system, the doping of oxygen leads to the suppression of superconductivity, reflecting the importance of Ca–F layer disorder in this system.
