Examples of First-Order *Electronic* Phase Transitions?

  1. Jul 30, 2015 #1
    Hi, I'm wondering if people could help me compile a list of ELECTRONIC phase transitions, that are FIRST-ORDER, that occur at room temperature and can be driven by things like doping, strain, magnetic fields, etc. rather than temperature. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Also, would anyone happen to know any references to the enthalpies of such transitions?

    Maybe formation of a Wigner crystal when reducing the electronic density.
