Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a model for the electron system in NbSe3 based on its quasi one-dimensional metallic properties. In a one-dimensional metal phonon drag of 2KF-phonons takes place at temperatures higher than θD, since the phonon-electron scattering rate τ-1ph-el is greater than the phonon-phonon rate τ-1ph-ph. this situation is in contrast to the situation in three dimensional metals, where phonon drag takes place only at very low temperatures. Our model explains the transport properties of the material including the electrical conductivity anistropy, the conductivity in a strong electric field, and the Hall effect data.
