Abstract

AV3Sb5 (A = K, Rb, Cs) is a novel kagome superconductor coexisting with the charge density wave (CDW) order. Identifying the structure of the CDW order is crucial for understanding the exotic normal state and superconductivity in this system. Here, we report 51V nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and 121/123Sb nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) studies on kagome-metal CsV3Sb5. Below the CDW transition temperature TCDW ~ 98 K, an abrupt change of spectra was observed, indicating that the transition is of the first order. By further analyzing the spectra, we find that the CDW order is commensurate. And most remarkably, the obtained experimental results suggest that the charge modulation of the CDW order is of star-of-David pattern and accompanied by an additional charge modulation in bulk below T* ~ 40 K. Our results revealing the unconventional CDW order provide new insights into AV3Sb5.
