We find the finite width, i.e., the layer thickness, of experimental quasi-two-dimensional systems produces a physical environment sufficient to stabilize the Moore-Read Pfaffian state thought to describe the fractional quantum Hall effect at filling factor nu=5/2. This conclusion is based on exact calculations performed in the spherical and torus… CONTINUE READING
