3 3 Why quasi-one organic superconductors? (TMTSF) 2 ClO 4 : an exotic organic conductor Effect of disorder on the interplay between Superconductivity and SDW Effect of a magnetic field: new field induced SDW (FISDW) phases

4 4 Why superconductors ? Uses for superconductors: Also as … Electric generator (99% more efficient than ordinary one) SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device): sensing weak magnetic field Military: antenna and in detecting mines (US NAVY) … IRM Accelerator LHC (CERN) Maglev in Japan: fast, safe and economic

5 5 The future of Superconductors

6 6 Why organic superconductors ? Dream: towards room temperature superconductors !!! Problems: difficulties to synthesize such materials until… Little’s Proposition (1964): look for organic conductors with one dimensional character to get high Tc !!!

7 7 Why organic superconductors ? But: there are still open questions !!!  1979: discovery of organic superconductivity in a quasi-one dimensional salt (TMTSF) 2 PF 6 (D. Jérome’s group) …then in Bechgaard salts denoted by (TMTSF) 2 X (X=PF 6 -, ClO 4 - …) Interplay between SC/ SDW : coexistence or competition? SDW SC BUT : T C =1.2 K (so low !!!) a complete laboratory for physicists intensive study
