We report 115In nuclear-quadrupole-resonance (NQR) measurements of the pressure(P)-induced superconductor CeRhIn5 in the antiferromagnetic (AF) and superconducting (SC) states. In the AF region, the internal field Hint at the In site is substantially reduced from Hint = 1.75 kOe at P = 0 to 0.39 kOe at P = 1.23 GPa, while the Néel temperature slightly changes with increasing P. This suggests that either the size in the ordered moment MQ(P) or the angle θ(P) between the direction of MQ(P) and the tetragonal c axis is extrapolated to zero at P* = 1.6±0.1 GPa at which a bulk SC transition is no longer- emergent. In the SC state at P =2.1 GPa, the nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate 115(1/T1) has revealed a T3 dependence without the coherence peak just below Tc, giving evidence for the unconventional superconductivity. The dimensionality of the magnetic fluctuations in the normal state is also discussed.
