Title: X-ray anomalous scattering investigation of BaVS{sub 3}

Abstract

The quasi-one-dimensional conductor BaVS{sub 3} undergoes a metal-insulator transition at T{sub MI}=70 K accompanied by a formation of superstructure doubling the chain periodicity and a magnetic transition at T{sub X}=30 K. We present an anomalous x-ray scattering investigation of the charge-density wave (CDW) satellite reflections at the V K-edge. Our study shows that no charge disproportionation larger than 0.01 electron occurs at T{sub MI} and T{sub X}. We interpret this result by the stabilization of two out-of phase CDW's for the d{sub z{sup 2}} and e(t{sub 2g}) electrons, which induces an orbital ordering while reducing the intrachain Coulomb repulsions.
