Abstract

We elaborate an analytical theory of a cascade of magnetic field-induced charge-density-wave (FICDW) phases. It is shown that the following features distinguish it from the well-known spin-density-wave cascade: (1) the FICDW phases exist at temperatures much lower than the characteristic CDW transition temperature at H = 0; (2) the cascade of the FICDW phases dramatically changes at certain directions of a magnetic field due to an interplay of Zeeman spin-splitting and electron motion along open Fermi surfaces. Theoretical results are compared with the recent experimental attempts to reveal FICDW phases in the organic conductors α-(ET)2MHg(SCN)4 (M = K, Tl, Rb, etc.).
