We have studied the 93Nb NMR in single crystals of (NbSe4)10/3I (1.8 mg) and (NbSe4)3I (20 mg). In the first compound, the onset of the CDW has been followed through the temperature dependence of the (1/2,−1/2) transition. Using computer simulation of the lineshapes, we have determined the temperature dependence of the order parameter. Comparison of the spin-lattice relaxation rate in (NbSe4)3I and (NbSe4)10/3I, indicate the fluctuations of the the pinned CDW are the dominant mechanism.
