Abstract Using time-resolved, high-resolution x-ray scattering techniques, we have measured the evolution of the transverse structure of the NbSe{sub 3} {bold Q}{sub 1} charge-density wave as it relaxes from the sliding state to the pinned state. Measurements were made at temperatures between 70 and 120thinspthinspK and at electric field strengths between 2{times} and 10{times} the threshold for sliding. These time-dependent data are accurately described by dynamic scaling theory. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}
