    The27Al and55Mn spin-echo spectra in the Al-Pd-Mn quasicrystalline alloys have been measured as a function of Al content and temperature. The lineshape and peak shift between the simple icosahedral phase and the face-centred icosahedral phase exhibit different characteristics in the27Al and55Mn spectra. They are temperature independent in the former phase and markedly temperature dependent in the latter phase. The27Al Knight shift is almost zero in the Al90-xPdxMn10-containing simple icosahedral phase with Pd contents x of 5, 10 and 15 whereas that in the Al70Pd20Mn10 is negative, suggesting that these phases are in different electronic states.
