Description/Abstract

We have studied numerically the dynamics of sliding charge-density waves (CDWs) in the presence of impurities in d=1,2. The model considered exhibits a first order dynamical transition at a critical driving force

Fc between “rough” (disorder dominated) (F < Fc) and “flat” (F > Fc) sliding phases where disorder is washed out by the external drive. The effective model for the sliding CDWs in the presence of impurities can be mapped onto that of a magnetic flux line pinned by columnar defects and tilted by an applied field. The dynamical transition of sliding CDWs corresponds to the transverse Meissner effect of the tilted flux line.
