In NbSe3 a thermal gradient splits the frequency of voltage oscillation (charge-density-wave conduction noise) into two frequencies. If the sample length is short the two frequencies remain locked together over a 1- to 10-K range of temperature difference. This is consistent with the phase-slip models, but incompatible with impurity-based models.
