Title Evidence for solitons in conducting organic charge-transfer crystals
Date 1982
Description Magnetic susceptibility of (N-methylphenazinium)x(phenazine)(1-x (tetracyanoquinodimethanide) [(NMP)x(Phen)1-x(TCNQ)] shows the formation of defect states for 0.5<x<0.54. Diffuse x-ray scattering and g-value studies indicate that these defects are solitons formed in the highly correlated quasi-one-dimensional system that occurs near the quarter-filled-band limit. A model for the decrease in the energy gap in the presence of large numbers of solitons is proposed to explain the excess conductivity.
