Abstract

Recently, co-existence of the ferromagnetism and superconductivity was reported in the high-pressure region (1.0-1.6 GPa) in UGe2. We performed the heat capacity measurement on UGe2 under high pressure. At 1.15 GPa, we found a peak corresponding to the superconducting transition. The superconducting temperature TSC and ΔC/(γTSC) are 0.6 K and 0.25, respectively. The superconducting transition was also confirmed by the appearance of the Meissner effect in the AC susceptibility. From these results, we confirm a bulk nature of the superconductivity in UGe2. The value of C/T (∼95 mJ/molK2) just above TSC at 1.15 GPa is as much as 3 times larger than that at ambient pressure, which indicates a large mass enhancement of quasiparticles under high pressure.
