Abstract

We report the results of 63Cu nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) measurements on CeCu2Si2 under high pressures up to 4.8 GPa. Enhanced spin fluctuations due to quantum criticality at ambient pressure are drastically suppressed with increasing pressure, whereas Tc increases from 0.7 K at ambient pressure to 1.64 K at 4.2 GPa. We have found that bulk superconductivity suddenly disappears at 4.8 GPa accompanied with a rapid decrease in the density of states at the Fermi level. The nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate 1/T1 at 4.2 GPa reveals that anisotropic superconductivity in the strong-coupling regime is realized even under high pressure far from the antiferromagnetic critical point. Superconductivity under high pressure is unconventional in origin, but the spin fluctuation scenario is not likely to be applicable.
