Abstract

To investigate the electronic state of La3Ir2Ge 2, we have carried out 139La-NQR measurement. In the normal state, the spin-lattice relaxation rate 1/T1 is proportional to the temperature T. 1/T1 shows a small coherence peak just below the superconducting transition temperature Tc = 4.7 K and decreases exponentially well below Tc. La3Ir2Ge 2 is found to be a BCS superconductor with an energy gap 2Δ(0) = 3.52kBTc.
