Low-temperature spin-density-wave transport

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The spin-density-wave contribution to the electric transport gives rise to novel nonlinear conduction phenomena in (TMTSF)2PF6. In the temperature range of the typical sliding conduction there are significant internal mode excitations and the coupling to the one-electron excitations controll the dynamics of the condensate. At lower temperature, below T = 1 K, a new type of collective spin-density-wave transport emerges as the normal carriers freeze out. The current density follows a tunneling expression, and the parameters are suggestive for excitations well below the single particle gap.
