Title: NMR Study of the New Magnetic Superconductor CaK(Fe 0:951Ni0:049) 4As 4: Microscopic Coexistence of Hedgehog Spin-vortex Crystal and Superconductivity

Abstract

Coexistence of a new-type antiferromagnetic (AFM) state, the so-called hedgehog spin-vortex crystal (SVC), and superconductivity (SC) is evidenced by 75As nuclear magnetic resonance study on single-crystalline CaK(Fe 0:951Ni0:049) 4As 4. The hedgehog SVC order is clearly demonstrated by the direct observation of the internal magnetic induction along the c axis at the As1 site (close to K) and a zero net internal magnetic induction at the As2 site (close to Ca) below an AFM ordering temperature T N ~ 52 K. The nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate 1/T 1 shows a distinct decrease below T c ~ 10 K, providing also unambiguous evidence for the microscopic coexistence. Furthermore, based on the analysis of the 1/T 1 data, the hedgehog SVC-type spin correlations are found to be enhanced below T ~ 150 K in the paramagnetic state. Furthermore, these results indicate the hedgehog SVC-type spin correlations play an important role for the appearance of SC in the new magnetic superconductor.
