The frustrated triangular-lattice delafossite NaYbO2 is a promising candidate for realizing a quantum spin liquid (QSL) ground state. The combination of a strong spin-orbit coupling and crystalline-electric-field effects leads to a magnetic anisotropy and a pseudospin-1/2 state of the Yb3+ ions at low temperatures. The absence of magnetic order and emergence of pronounced low-energy spin fluctuations have been shown by several experimental techniques, such as specific heat, inelastic neutron scattering, and muon spin relaxation. We present 23Na NMR investigations of the low-temperature spin correlations by means of spectroscopy and 1/T1 measurements of polycrystalline NaYbO2. At small magnetic fields and low temperatures, a strongly increased 1/T1 rate, as well as the absence of significant spectral line broadening suggest the presence of a QSL ground state with critical fluctuations at the verge of a magnetic instability. Above about 1 T, a crossover regime with persistent strong spin fluctuations and an onset of static magnetic ordering is observed. For fields above about 2 T, the formation of field-induced long-range magnetic order yields a strongly suppressed 1/T1 rate and an inhomogeneously broadened spectral lineshape.
