Title: Tuning of charge density wave transitions in LaAuxSb2 by pressure and Au stoichiometry

Abstract

Two charge density wave transition can be detected in La Au Sb 2 at ~ 110 and ~ 90 K by careful electrical transport measurements. Whereas control of the Au site occupancy in La Au x Sb 2 (for 0.9 x 1.0 ) can suppress each of these transitions by ~ 80 K , the application of hydrostatic pressure can completely suppress the lower transition by ~ 7.5 kbar and the upper transition by ~ 17 kbar . Here, clear anomalies in the resistance as well as the magnetoresistance are observed to coincide with the pressures at which the charge density wave transitions are driven to zero.
