The Knight shift K and the nuclear spin-lattice relaxation time T1 of 7Li have been measured under high pressure up to 4.74 GPa. 1/T1T becomes larger on applying higher pressure below 10 K and does not obey the T1T = constant relation down to 1 K. Meanwhile, K is independent of pressure above 2 GPa, indicating that the uniform component of the susceptibility does not change under high pressure. These results indicate that some antiferromagnetic fluctuations with wavevector q ≠ 0 dominate the relaxation rate in LiV2O4 near the boundary of the pressure induced insulating phase. It is noted that the pressure dependence of T1 for LiV2O4 is opposite to that of typical Ce HF compounds, such as CeCu5.9Au0.1 and CeCu2Si2. At the highest pressure of 4.74 GPa, we found that 1/T1 obeys a power law dependence of T2/3 over the wide T range between 60 mK and 10 K. The spin dynamics under high pressure will be discussed.
