Preemptive nematic order, pseudogap, and orbital order in the iron pnictides
The FeTe compounds of the 11 family has a bicollinear AF(B-CAF) ground state as shown in fig.7(a).
Nematic orders in Iron-based superconductors
The large lattice distortion indicates a strong coupling between spin and lattice and is consistent with the fact there is only one strong first-order type transition in FeTe, namely, the B-CAF and monoclinic lattice distortion take place at the same transition temperature which is about 70K.
Nematic orders in Iron-based superconductors
The ordered magnetic moment in FeTe about 2.3µB is also significantly larger than the ones in iron-pnictides.
