量子臨界金属CeCoIn$$_5$$のInを少量のCdで置換した時の電子状態を核四重極共鳴(NQR)を用いて調べた。およそ半分のCd置換子周りで局所的にCeの局在モーメントが発生することを、縦緩和率$$1/T_1$$のサイト依存性から明らかにした。横緩和率$$T_{rm 2G}$$の測定も行い、局在スピン周りでは、$$T_1T/T_{rm 2G}^2$$が温度$$T$$に比例し、一方、置換子から離れたところでは、$$T_1T/T_{rm 2G}^2propto T^{0.7}$$となっており、純CeCoIn$$_5$$$$T^{0.75}$$に近く、バルクの電子状態は量子臨界状態のままである。

We have used nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) to probe microscopically the response of a prototypical quantum critical metal CeCoIn$$_5$$ to substitutions of small amounts of Cd for In. Approximately half of the Cd substituents induce local Ce moments in their close proximity, as observed by site-dependent longitudinal nuclear spin relaxation rates $$1/T_1$$. To reaffirm that localized $$f$$ moments are induced around the Cd substituents, we find a Gaussian spin-echo decay rate $$1/T_{rm 2G}$$ of transverse nuclear spin relaxation. Further, $$T_1T/T_{rm 2G}^2$$ for the NQR subpeak is found to be proportional to temperatures, again indicating local moments fluctuations around the Cd substituents, while that for the NQR main peak shows a $$T^{0.7}$$-dependence. The latter temperature dependence is close to 0.75 in pure CeCoIn$$_5$$ and indicates that the bulk electronic state is located close to a two dimensional quantum critical instability.
