Iridium based double perovskites are unique materials where Coulomb repulsion, strong spin-orbit coupling, exchange interaction and crystal field have comparable energy scales. The interplay between all of these interactions and correlations may lead to the emergence of novel electronic and magnetic states. In this work we report the 139La nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) results on the double perovskite compounds La2MIrO6 with magnetic and nonmagnetic ions at the M position (M = Co, Cu, Zn). Nuclear relaxation rate T1−1 measurements in La2CuIrO6 show the peak at T ≈ 74 K that is the signature of a magnetic transition. Moreover with further decreasing the temperature the T-dependence of T1−1 shows the shoulder at T ≈ 60 K that can be associated with a cooperative ordering of the transverse moments. In case of La2CoIrO6 the T1−1 measurements do not show any anomalies at T below the ordering temperature. Our investigation has revealed complex magnetic interactions in the compound where strongly spin-orbit coupled 5d transition metal ions coexist with strongly correlated spin-only 3d (Co, Cu) and non-magnetic Zn ions.
