Physical phenomena in new organic conductors
Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, ul. Kosygina 2, Moscow, 119334, Russian Federation
Recent theoretical and experimental results on new synthetic metals--Bechgaard's salts--are reviewed. Superconductivity has been observed in these organic compounds for the first time. Furthermore, these materials exhibit such a variety of new and unusual physical properties that research on them is opening up a new branch of solid state physics.
