    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The Field Induced Spin Density Waves (FISDWs) found in organic conductors represent a unique series of transitions which meld the one-dimensional physics of the Peierls instability with the two-dimensional physics of the Quantum Hall Effect. This paper presents a pedagogical introduction to the FISDW's in the Bechgaard salts, along with recent experimental results on related high magnetic field phenomena.
