The monophosphite TaP has a non centrosymmetric structure and sizable spin orbit coupling and belongs the class of Weyl semimetals. A crossing of lineare dispersive (E ∝ k) topologically protected polarized bands in a single point in reciprocal space defines the Weyl node where the fermion mass vanishes theoretically and a giant orbital hyperfine coupling is expected . 181Ta quadrupole resonance (NQR) resolves three NQR lines associated to the split level transitions for I=7/2 Ta. The spin lattice relaxation was measured for the ±5/2 ↔ ±3/2 transition. Above 30 K, a pronounced (1/T1T) ∝ T2 is found. We attributed this to the magnetic excitations of Weyl fermions (N(E) ∝ E2) with temperature dependent orbital hyperfine coupling in agreement with the prediction from theory .
