A $^{59}$Co nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) measurement was performed on the single-crystalline ferromagnetic (FM) superconductor UCoGe under a pressure of 1.09 GPa, where the FM state is suppressed and superconductivity occurs in the paramagnetic (PM) state, to study the superconducting (SC) state in the PMstate. $^{59}$Co-NMR spectra became broader but hardly shifted across the SC transition temperature... The Knight-shift change determined from fitting the spectral peak with a Gaussian was much smaller than the spin part of the Knight shift; this is in good agreement with the spin-triplet pairing suggested from the large upper critical field. The spectrum broadening in the SC state cannot be attributed to the SC diamagnetic effect but is related to the properties of spin-triplet superconductivity. The origins of the broadening are discussed herein. read more
