Abstract: The PuCoGa5 unconventional superconductor contains plutonium atoms with a nonmagnetic ground state. Yet, magnetic or virtual valence fluctuations are suspected to provide the mediating boson leading to electron pairing. Using X-ray Magnetic Circular Dichroism, we followed the subtle changes in the plutonium magnetism across the superconducting transition.
