Title: Suppression of charge density wave order by disorder in Pd-intercalated ErTe 3

Abstract

Disorder is generically anticipated to suppress long range charge density wave (CDW) order. We report transport, thermodynamic, and scattering experiments on Pd xErTe 3, a model CDW system with disorder induced by intercalation. The pristine parent compound (x=0) shows two separate, mutually perpendicular, incommensurate unidirectional CDW phases setting in at 270 K and 165 K. In this work we present measurements on a finely-spaced series of single crystal samples, in which we track the suppression of signatures corresponding to these two parent transitions as the Pd concentration increases. At the largest values of x, we observe complete suppression of long range CDW order in favor of superconductivity. We also report evidence from electron and x-ray diffraction which suggests a tendency toward short-range ordering along both wave vectors which persists even well above the crossover temperature and comment on the origin and consequences of this effect. Based on this paper, Pd xErTe 3 appears to provide a promising model system for the study of the interrelation of charge order and superconductivity in the presence of quenched disorder, for pseudotetragonal materials.
