Title: Ferromagnetic spin fluctuations in the filled skutterudite SrFe 4As 12 revealed by 75As NMR-NQR measurements

Abstract

75As nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) measurements have been carried out to investigate the magnetic and electronic properties of the filled skutterudite metallic compound SrFe 4As 12. The temperature dependence of Knight shift K determined by the NQR spectrum under a small magnetic field (≤ 0.5T) shows the similar temperature dependence of the magnetic susceptibility χ which exhibits a broad maximum at T* ~50 K. The nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate divided by temperature 1/T 1T increases with decreasing temperature and exhibits a broad maximum at T~70 K, similar to the case of χ. The temperature dependence of K and 1/T 1T is reasonably explained by a simple model where we assume a concave-shaped band structure near the Fermi energy. Based on a Korringa ratio analysis using the T1 and K data, ferromagnetic spin fluctuations are found to exist in SrFe 4As 12. Furthermore, these results indicate that SrFe 4As 12 can be characterized to be a metal with ferromagnetic correlations and also the peculiar band structure responsible for the suppression of 1/T 1T and K at low temperatures.
