Abstract

We report dc conductivity (σ) measurements on the linear chain compound NbS3. The temperature dependence of σ indicates a phase trànsition at TMI = 155 K with strong one-dimensional fluctuations above TMI. Below TMI the conductivity is strongly increasing with increasing electric field above a threshold field ET, and is also strongly frequency dependent. We argue that the nonlinear conductivity is due to sliding charge density waves.
