The fractional quantum Hall (FQH) effect refers to the strongly-correlated phenomena and the as- sociated quantum phases of matter realized in a two-dimensional gas of electrons placed in a large perpendicular magnetic field. In such systems, topology and quantum mechanics conspire to give rise to exotic physics that manifests via robust quantization of the Hall resistance. In this chapter, we provide an overview of the experimental phenomenology of the FQH effect in GaAs-based semicon- ductor…

Fractional quantum Hall effect at the filling factor $\nu=5/2$

The fractional quantum Hall (FQH) effect at the filling factor ν = 5 / 2 was discovered in GaAs heterostructures more than 35 years ago. Various topological orders have been proposed as possible

Fractional Statistics

The quantum-mechanical description of assemblies of particles whose motion is confined to two (or one) spatial dimensions offers many possibilities that are distinct from bosons and fermions. We call

Phase diagram of fractional quantum Hall effect of composite fermions in multicomponent systems

While the integer quantum Hall effect of composite fermions manifests as the prominent fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE) of electrons, the FQHE of composite fermions produces further, more

Quantized thermal transport in the fractional quantum Hall effect

We analyze thermal transport in the fractional quantum Hall effect ~FQHE!, employing a Luttinger liquid model of edge states. Impurity mediated interchannel scattering events are incorporated in a

Fractional quantum Hall states in two-dimensional electron systems with anisotropic interactions

We study the anisotropic effect of the Coulomb interaction on a 1/3-filling fractional quantum Hall system by using an exact diagonalization method on small systems in torus geometry. For weak

Fractional quantum Hall effect in a tilted magnetic field

We discuss the orbital effect of a tilted magnetic field on the quantum Hall effect in parabolic quantum wells. Many-body states realized at the fractional 1/3 and 1/2 filling of the second

Electron spin transitions in quantum Hall systems

A system of two-dimensional electron gas in a strong magnetic field exhibits a remarkable phenomenon known as the fractional quantum Hall effect. Rapid advances in experimental techniques and intense

Fractional quantum Hall hierarchy and the second Landau level

We generalize the fractional quantum Hall hierarchy picture to apply to arbitrary, possibly non-Abelian, fractional quantum Hall states. Applying this to the nu = 5/2 Moore-Read state, we construct

Fractional quantum Hall effect of composite fermions.

These sequences of fractions do not fit into the standard series of integral quantum Hall effects of composite fermions (CF) at nu = p/(2mp +/- 1), but can be regarded as the FQHE of CFs attesting to residual interactions between these composite particles.

Theory of Nematic Fractional Quantum Hall State

We derive an effective field theory for the isotropic-nematic quantum phase transition of fractional quantum Hall (FQH) states. We demonstrate that for a system with an isotropic background the

Origin of the ν=1/2 fractional quantum Hall effect in wide quantum wells

The nature of the fractional quantum Hall effect at $\nu=1/2$ observed in wide quantum wells almost three decades ago is still under debate. Previous studies have investigated it by the variational

Geometric quench and nonequilibrium dynamics of fractional quantum Hall states

We introduce a quench of the geometry of Landau level orbitals as a probe of non-equilibrium dynamics of fractional quantum Hall states. The quench protocol can be experimentally implemented as a
