Organic charge-transfer salts allow for a systematic examination of strong electron-electron correlation in reduced dimensions. The θ-(ET)2X salts, which consist of alternating layers of conducting organic molecules (ET)2 and insulating anions X, exhibit charge ordering in the conducting layers below a characteristic temperature. However, the phase transition of the electronic system to this ordered state can be avoided by rapid cooling . Then, a glass-like state emerges due to the geometric frustration of the conducting lattice, which acts against the formation of long-range order. We study the system θ-(ET)2TlZn(SCN)4, whose lattice is more anisotropic, and thus less frustrated, than that of other θ-phase compounds. Therefore, rather high cooling rates of at least 50 K/min are required to force a transition to the charge-glass state . We achieve these cooling rates using a voltage pulse method recently shown  to be capable of rates in excess of 1000 K/min. Resistance fluctuation spectroscopy is then employed to gain insights into the deceleration of microscopic dynamics at the liquid-glass transition .
