General introduction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


For a long time, quasi-one-dimensional (Q1D) halogen-bridged metal complexes have attracted much attention of chemists and physicists because of significant physical properties based on their Q1D electronic structures such as intense and dichroic charge transfer (CT) bands [1-3], progressive overtones in the resonance Raman spectra [4-7], midgap absorptions attributable to solitons and polarons [8-10], gigantic third-order nonlinear optical susceptibilities [11, 12], spin-Peierls transitions [13], thermochromism in the organic media [14], insertion of 1D chains into artificial peptides [15], current oscillation phenomena [16], and field effect carrier doping [17].
