A systematic program of experiments designed to test the tunneling theory of charge-density-wave conduction has been carried out over a wide temperature range below three different Peierls transitions in NbSe3 and TaS3. The results support the hypothesis that charge-density waves depin by quantum tunneling, and are in detailed and consistent agreement with predictions of the model described in the companion paper.
