          Abstract

          A Fulde-Ferrell-Larkin-Ovchinnkov (FFLO) state was previously reported in the quasi-2D heavy fermion CeCoIn5 when a magnetic field was applied parallel to the ab plane. Here, we conduct 115In NMR studies of this material in a perpendicular field, and provide strong evidence for FFLO in this case as well. Although the topology of the phase transition lines in the H-T phase diagram is identical for both configurations, there are several remarkable differences between them. Compared to H parallelab, the FFLO phase for H perpendicularab is confined in a much narrower region at the low-T-high-H corner in the H-T plane, and the critical field separating the FFLO and non-FFLO superconducting states almost ceases to have a temperature dependence. Moreover, directing H perpendicularab results in a notable change in the quasiparticle excitation spectrum within the planar node associated with the FFLO transition.
