Abstract

New data on hysteretic effects in the charge-density-wave system of orthorhombic TaS3 are presented. The effects are (i) relaxation of the normal resistance following a thermal quench, (ii) sign memory charging in the voltage response to a current pulse preceded by a pulse of opposite sign, and (iii) delayed switching from a normal conducting to a sliding change-density-wave state. A model is proposed relating these effects: They are manifestations of the relaxation of the charge-density-wave amplitude brought out of equilibrium by a sudden change in temperature or electric field. The thermal quench and the switching experiments lead to the same relaxation rate.
