In-plane angular-dependent resistivity (ADR) was measured in the non-Fermi liquid regime of CeCo In5 single crystals at temperatures T≤20 K and in magnetic fields H up to 14 T. Two scaling behaviors were identified in the low-field region where resistivity shows a linear T dependence, separated by a critical angle θc, which is determined by the anisotropy of CeCo In5; i.e., ADR depends only on the perpendicular (parallel) field component below (above) θc. These scaling behaviors and other salient features of ADR are consistent with d -wave density waves.
