We report on the pressure-induced novel phases of ferromagnetism and superconductivity (SC) in the itinerant ferromagnet UGe2 via the 73Ge-NQR measurements under pressure (P). The NQR spectrum has revealed that the ferromagnetic phases are separated into weakly and strongly polarized phases around a critical value of Pc*∼1.2GPa, pointing to a first-order transition around Pc*. Here we present further evidence for the phase separation into ferromagnetic and paramagnetic phases around a critical pressure Pc∼1.6GPa. The measurements of nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate 1/T1 have probed that SC sets only in the ferromagnetic phase at Tsc∼0.2K, but it does not in the paramagnetic phase.
