@article{Hur2008ChargeFI, title={Charge fractionalization in nonchiral Luttinger systems}, author={Karyn Le Hur and Bertrand I. Halperin and Amir Yacoby}, journal={Annals of Physics}, year={2008}, volume={323}, pages={3037-3058} }

One-dimensional metals, such as quantum wires or carbon nanotubes, can carry charge in arbitrary units, smaller or larger than a single electron charge. However, according to Luttinger theory, which describes the low-energy excitations of such systems, when a single electron is injected by tunneling into the middle of such a wire, it will tend to break up into separate charge pulses, moving in opposite directions, which carry definite fractions f and (1-f) of the electron charge, determined by…

In experiments on resonant tunneling through a "quantum antidot" (a potential hill) in the quantum Hall (QH) regime, periodic conductance peaks were observed as a function of both magnetic field and back gate voltage, implying that charge deficiency on the antidot is quantized in units of the charge of quasi-particles of the surrounding QH condensate.
