We report systematic evolution of superconducting (SC) characteristic of heavy-fermion superconductor CeCoIn5 via the nuclear-quadrupole- resonance (NQR) measurement under pressure (P). The temperature dependence of nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate (1/Tl) below Tc has revealed that once the value of SC energy gap (2Δ0/k BTc) slightly increases in P<0.45 GPa, with further increasing P, it decreases significantly. By contrast, TC increases monotonously up to 2.6K as P increases up to 1 GPa, exhibiting a saturation in P = 1.0-1.5GPa.
