AbstractIn the vicinity of a competing electronic order, superconductivity emerges within a superconducting dome in the phase diagram, which has been demonstrated in unconventional superconductors and transition-metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), suggesting a scenario where fluctuations or a partial melting of a parent order are essential for inducing superconductivity. Here, we present a contrary example, the two-dimensional (2D) superconductivity in transition-metal carbide can be readily turned into charge density wave (CDW) phases via dilute magnetic doping. Low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy (STM/STS), transport measurements, and density functional theory (DFT) calculations were employed to investigate Cr-doped superconducting Mo2C crystals in the 2D limit. With ultralow Cr doping (2.7 atom %), the superconductivity of Mo2C is heavily suppressed. Strikingly, an incommensurate density wave (IDW) and a related partially opened gap are observed at a temperature above the superconducting regime. The wave vector of IDW agrees well with the calculated Fermi surface nesting vectors. By further increasing the Cr doping level to 9.4 atom %, a stronger IDW with a smaller periodicity and a larger partial gap appear concurrently. The resistance anomaly implies the onset of the CDW phase. Spatial-resolved and temperature-dependent spectroscopy reveals that such CDW phases exist only in a nonsuperconducting regime and could form long-range orders uniformly. The results provide the understanding for the interplay between charge ordered states and superconductivity in 2D transition-metal carbide.
