NbTe4 crystal is a quasi-1D CDW material belonging to space group P4/mcc. In these materials, the metal cation atoms quasi-linear chains along the anisotropy axis. NbTe4 undergoes a strong lattice reconstruction near room temperature to form an incommensurate charge density wave (CDW) phase and further exhibits pressure induced superconductivity. Our NbTe4 crystals were synthesized using self flux technique at 99.9998% purity levels with excellent electronic properties. Each order contains a single crystal measuring <5mm in size.
Growth technique matters: Our NbTe4 crystals are grown using highest quality precursors with highest purity available and using sophisticated technique (flux growth) to ensure the crystals are free of contamination. Without these contamination, we guarantee the observation of high pressure superconductivity and CDW phases.
