- We present Co substitution effects in KxFe2-y-z CozSe2 (0.06 <= z <= 1.73) single-crystal alloys. By 3.5% of Co doping superconductivity is suppressed, whereas phase separation of semiconducting K2Fe4Se5 and superconducting/metallic KxFe2Se2 is still present. We show that the arrangement and distribution of the superconducting phase (stripe phase) are connected with the arrangement of K, Fe, and Co atoms. Semiconducting spin glass is found in proximity to the superconducting state, persisting for large Co concentrations. At high Co concentrations a ferromagnetic metallic state emerges above the spin glass. This is coincident with changes of the unit cell and arrangement and connectivity of the stripe conducting phase.
