In this proposal, we plan to investigate on the ternary phosphide ScIrP a type-II superconductor with Tc ~ 3.4 K. We have synthesized ScIrP by a solid state reaction method. XRD data confirms that ScIrP crystallizes in the hexagonal ZrNiAl-type structure with a noncentrosymmetric space group of P62m. This crystal structure consists of alternately stacked Sc and Ir layers, in which Sc and Ir atoms are square-pyramidally and tetrahedrally coordinated by phosphorous atoms, respectively.
