We study a number of fractional quantum Hall systems, such as quantum Hall bilayers, wide quantum wells or graphene, where underlying multicomponent degrees of freedom lead to novel physical phenomena. In the quantum Hall bilayer at the filling factor nu=1 we study mixed composite boson-composite fermion trial wave functions in order to describe the disordering of the exciton superfluid as the bilayer distance is increased. We propose wave functions to describe the states of the bilayer for… 
s-Wave Paired Electron and Hole Composite Fermion Trial State for Quantum Hall Bilayers with ν=1.
We introduce a new variational wave function for a quantum Hall bilayer at total filling ν_{T}=1, which is based on s-wave BCS pairing between electron composite fermions in one layer and hole
$s$-wave paired composite-fermion electron-hole trial state for quantum Hall bilayers with $\nu=1$
We introduce a new variational wavefunction for a quantum Hall bilayer at total filling ν = 1, which is based on s-wave BCS pairing between composite-fermion electrons in one layer and
Microscopic study of the Halperin–Laughlin interface through matrix product states
A microscopic study on the low energy physics, interface gapless mode, identification of spin and charge excitations, etc. of the Halperin–Laughlin interface using recently proposed model wavefunctions.
Thermodynamic measurements of ultra-clean van der Waals heterostructures
Author(s): Zibrov, Alexander A | Advisor(s): Young, Andrea F | Abstract: When interactions between electrons dominate over their kinetic energies, this can lead to emergent collective states with new
Model states for a class of chiral topological order interfaces
A family of model wave functions based on matrix product states is proposed which not only unveils the universal properties of the whole system but also unprecedented captures low energy physics.


Multi-Component Quantum Hall Systems: The Sum of their Parts and More
The physics of the fractional quantum Hall effect is the physics of interacting electrons confined to a macroscopically degenerate Landau level. In this Chapter we discuss the theory of the quantum
‘One-dimensional’ theory of the quantum Hall system
We consider the lowest Landau level on a torus as a function of its circumference L1. When L1 → 0, the ground state at general rational filling fraction is a crystal with a gap—a Tao–Thouless state.
The Quantum Hall Effect
The integral quantum Hall effect was discovered in 1980 by Klaus von Klitzing, Michael Pepper, and Gerhardt Dordda. Truly remarkably, at low temperatures (~ 4 K), the Hall resistance of a two
A conformal field theory description of fractional quantum Hall states
In this thesis, we give a description of fractional quantum Hall states in terms of conformal field theory (CFT). As was known for a long time, the Laughlin states could be written in terms of
Quantum phase transitions
Abstract We give a general introduction to quantum phase transitions in strongly correlated electron systems. These transitions, which occur at zero temperature when a non-thermal parameter g such as
Elementary Theory: the Incompressible Quantum Fluid
In this lecture, I shall outline what I believe to be the correct fundamental picture of the fractional quantum Hall effect. The principal features of this picture are that the 1/3 state and its
