Abstract

We report on chemical-substitution-induced evolution of magnetic correlations and unconventional superconductivity (SC) in CeRh1 - x Irx In5 via the 115In nuclear-quadrupole-resonance (NQR) measurements. It is revealed that the chemical substitution of Rh for Ir enhances markedly antiferromagnetic (AFM) spin fluctuations and superconducting transition temperature Tc. The temperature dependence of nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate 1 / T1 for x = 0.7 revealing a highest Tc = 1.2 K is interpreted by the anisotropic AFM spin fluctuations model that predicts a relation of T1 T ∝ ( T + θ )3 / 4 with θ ∼ 0. This indicates that the AFM quantum critical spin fluctuations are dominant in the normal state and then enhances Tc through the strong coupling effect of pairing interaction for x = 0.7.
