Abstract

The magnetoresistance of quasi-1D two-chain organic conductor HMTSF-TCNQ (hexamethylenetetraselenafulvalene-tetracyanoquinodimethane), which shows charge density wave transition at ambient pressure, was studied under pressure up to 27 T and 31 T, in two high field facilities. We found a kink structure in the magnetoresistance reminiscent of field-induced spin density wave at an intermediate pressure of 1.5 GPa between 0 and 2 GPa. We speculate that these are successive quantum phases induced by magnetic field.
