Abstract

Reflectivity measurements of the ternary molybdenum oxide purple bronzes A0.9Mo6O17 (A=Li, Na, and K) are presented at 300 and 6 K. The optical properties show different dependence of light polarization and temperature for the two-dimensional K and Na compounds compared to the one-dimensional Li compound. The possibility of a charge-density-wave onset is investigated, and a discussion in connection with recent transport-property investigations and new theoretical models is presented.
