The layered dichalcogenides of group Vb transition metals are well known not only as suitable intercalation materials but also for the charge density waves (CDW). This instability of the electron-phonon system commonly distorts their crystal structure and changes their electronic properties |1,2|. Ranging from hardly visible inflexions on conductivity curves to metal-insulator transitions, the manifestations of the CDWs have been for years a fruitful subject of research |3|.
