Edge states and interferometers in the Pfaffian and anti-Pfaffian states

Abstract

We compute the tunneling current in a double point contact geometry of a quantum Hall system at filling fraction = 5 2 , as a function of voltage and temperature, in the weak tunneling regime. We quantitatively compare two possible candidates for the state at = 5 2 : the Moore-Read Pfaffian state, and its particle-hole conjugate, the anti-Pfaffian. We find… (More)
