In the Rare-earth-Tri-telluride family, (RTe3s) [R=La, Ce, Nd, Sm, Gd, Tb, Dy, Er, Ho, Tm] the emergence of Charge Density Waves, (CDW) has been under investigation for a long time due to broadly tunable properties by either chemical substitution or pressure application. These quasi 2D Layered materials RTe3s undergo Fermi Surface Nesting leading to CDW instability.
