One-Dimensional Metals: Theory versus Experiment

  • T. M. Rice
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 23)


Attention is focussed on one-dimensional metals which do not have a Peierls transition. Such materials are possible theoretically but only within a narrow range of values of the coupling constants. Two examples are discussed, Hg2.88AsF6 which has a transition to a superconducting state and (TMTSF)2PF6 where recent experiments by WALSH and coworkers favor a spin density wave ground state. It is suggested that the superconducting phase of Hg2.88AsF6 could be triplet rather than singlet state superconductivity.
