Structural Instabilities in the Low Dimensional Molybdenum Bronzes and Oxides

  • Jean-Paul Pouget
Part of the Physics and Chemistry of Materials with Low-Dimensional Structures book series (PCMALS, volume 11)

Abstract

This chapter covers the structural instabilities of the molybdenum bronzes AxMoyOz, where A is a monovalent metal, and of the molybdenum oxides MonO3n-1. Most of them have been known for many years, but their low dimensional conducting properties were only recognized recently, and found to be related to their structural anisotropy. As a consequence of such anisotropic properties, it was observed that most of these Mo bronzes and oxides exhibit a low temperature charge density wave (CDW) instability.
