Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Band structure of organic superconductors was controlled using uniaxial strain method. The onset of the density-wave state, and the enhancement of the superconducting critical temperature were explained in terms of the change in the two-dimensional band structure under uniaxial compression. The c-aixs compression enhanced the density-of-states at the Fermi level by about 24%.
