R2Ir3Si5 (R = Lu, Er, Ho) at ambient conditions crystallizes in the orthorhombic Ibam, U2Co3Si5 structure type . Previously, physical property measurements were performed for single-crystal Lu2Ir3Si5 where both charge density wave (CDW) and superconductivity (SC) was found at 200 K and 2 K . However, the symmetry of the crystal in the CDW phase was left unexplored. We have studied both Lu2Ir3Si5 and Er2Ir3Si5 via single crystal x-ray diffraction (SXRD) down to 20 K where we found the structure is actually triclinic I-1 despite the strong monoclinic distortion of the lattice accompanied satellite reflections at q = δ(1 2 1), δ = 0.23 ∼ 0.25 and that the Ir-Ir band is responsible for the CDW [3, 4]. For Er2Ir3Si5 we also found from magnetic susceptibility that the CDW is strongly coupled with the magnetism .
Currently, upon investigation of another isostructural compound Ho2Ir3Si5 we find that it follows a similar pattern. All three compounds undergo a first-order CDW transition at 200 K for Lu, 150 K for Er and 110 K for Ho. Although, the CDW does not reside on the R atoms, the TCDW is influenced by it. Here I will present the atomic mechanisms of the CDW and its behavior with magnetism in the R2Ir3Si5 family elucidating the similarities and subtle differences between them.
