Field-Induced Quantized Magnetic Ordering in Quasi-One-Dimensional Conductors

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 155)


The purpose of this paper is to give a theoretical interpretation of the novel properties of Bechgaard salts in strong magnetic field1. These organic compounds are considered as the first examples of a whole class of materials exhibiting the same magnetic phenomena. The only conditions to belong to this class are, interactions favouring electron-hole pairing and a strong anisotropy of the electron band structure, more precisely the hierarchy in the electron transfer integrals along the three crystal axes: ta » tb » tc.
