Abstract

We report on a systematic evolution of the superconducting (SC) characteristics of CeCoIn5 via nuclear-quadrupole-resonance (NQR) measurement under pressure (P). The application of P significantly suppresses the nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate 1/T1 that is dominated by antiferromagnetic (AFM) spin fluctuations (SFs). The marked suppression of AFM SFs leads to the reduction in the size of SC energy gap. Nevertheless, Tc increases with the pressure due to the increase in HF bandwidth. This is expected to make the lifetime of quasi-particles sufficiently long.
