Superconducting and magnetic order are usually mutually exclusive, and are found to coexist in relatively few materials. We have obtained direct evidence for a spin-density wave (SDW) coexisting with bulk superconductivity in a ferromagnetic-superconducting trilayer. In the superconducting state the amplitude of the SDW is enhanced and modeling the data also suggests a pi/2 phase shift of one component of the SDW, implying a profound coupling of these two forms of order.
