We report spatially resolved nuclear-magnetic-resonance measurements on a high-temperature superconductor that indicate the presence of correlated antiferromagnetic fluctuations in the vortex core. The nuclear-spin-lattice relaxation rate 1/17T1 of planar 17O, in near-optimally doped YB2Cu3O7-δ, was measured. Outside of the core, (17T1T)-1 is independent of temperature consistent with theoretical predictions for a d-wave superconductor. In the vortex core, (17T1T)-1 increases with decreasing temperature following an antiferromagnetic Curie-Weiss law.
