abstract

  • We report ^{75}As NMR measurements on the new quasi-one-dimensional superconductor K_{2}Cr_{3}As_{3} (T_{c}∼6.1  K) [J. K. Bao et al., Phys. Rev. X 5, 011013 (2015)]. We found evidence for strong enhancement of Cr spin fluctuations above T_{c} in the [Cr_{3}As_{3}]_{∞} double-walled subnanotubes based on the nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate 1/T_{1}. The power-law temperature dependence, 1/T_{1}T∼T^{-γ} (γ∼0.25), is consistent with the Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid. Moreover, absence of the Hebel-Slichter coherence peak of 1/T_{1} just below T_{c} suggests an unconventional nature of superconductivity.
