Charge Density Waves in Layered Compounds
This conference concerns the properties of “One Dimensional” metals. However, I’m going to talk about Charge Density Wave (CDW) states in two dimensional metals. The motive for doing that at this conference is that there are a number of similarities in the kinds of phenomena that occur in the one and two dimensional systems and in the theories proposed to explain them. In some ways the two dimensional systems are easier to understand, in that their normal properties are not too dissimilar from normal 3 dimensional metals, the mechanisms for instabilities that occur are at least qualitatively understood, and the CDW properties are reasonably well described in terms of Landau models.
