Quasi-one-dimensional (ld) solids have recently attracted con siderable interest among solid-state physicists, both experimental and theoretical, because of their unusual physical properties [for a recent review, see Schuster (1975), Keller (1975) Päl, et al. (1977), Keller (1977), Miller and Epstein (1978)]. Some of their remarkable features are a high, sometimes even metallic conductivity at room temperature, metallic optical properties, the occurrence of a Peierls’ distortion of the linear chains in some cases, and the high anisotropy of most of their properties. Chemically and structurally very different groups of materials are presently considered to belong to the family of quasi-lD solids. Organic charge-transfer complexes (TTF-TCNQ and related materials), linear-chain transitionmetal compounds (KCP and its analogs), and trichalcogenides such as NbSe3 are only the most prominent members of this large and rapidly growing class of solids.
