Strong correlation between ferromagnetic superconductivity and pressure-enhanced ferromagnetic fluctuations in UGe$$_2$$

Tateiwa, Naoyuki; Haga, Yoshinori; Yamamoto, Etsuji

We have measured magnetization at high pressure in the uranium ferromagnetic superconductor UGe$$_2$$ and analyzed the magnetic data using Takahashi's spin fluctuation theory. There is a peak in the pressure dependence of the width of the spin fluctuation spectrum in the energy space $$T_0$$ at $$P_x$$, the phase boundary of FM1 and FM2 where the superconducting transition temperature $$T_{rm sc}$$ is highest. This suggests a clear correlation between the superconductivity and pressure-enhanced magnetic fluctuations developed at $$P_x$$. The pressure effect on $${T_{rm Curie}}/{T_0}$$, where $${T_{rm Curie}}$$ is the Curie temperature, suggests that the less itinerant ferromagnetic state FM2 is changed to a more itinerant one FM1 across $$P_x$$. Peculiar features in relations between $$T_0$$ and $$T_{rm sc}$$ in uranium ferromagnetic superconductors UGe$$_2$$, URhGe and UCoGe are discussed in comparison with those in high-$$T_c$$ cuprate and heavy fermion superconductors.
