Abstract

We report on a study of carbon thirteen (13C) NMR spectra in a superconducting fulleride K3C60. It is found that the spectra are reproduced as powder patterns of anisotropic NMR shifts. By analyzing the NMR shifts, the ratio of isotropic hyperfine coupling (Aiso spin) of conduction electrons to anisotropic one (Aax spin) is obtained experimentally for the first time (Aiso spin/Aax spin = 0.78). The substantial isotropy is consistent with the crystal structure of the C60 molecule. The contribution of carbon pπ-orbitals to Aax spin is found to be dominant.
