# Odd-even crossover in a non-Abelian ν=5/2 interferometer

@article{Bishara2009OddevenCI, title={Odd-even crossover in a non-Abelian $\nu$=5/2 interferometer}, author={Waheb Bishara and C. Nayak}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2009}, volume={80}, pages={155304} }

We compute the backscattered current in a double point-contact geometry of a quantum-Hall system at filling fraction ν=5/2 as a function of bias voltage in the weak backscattering regime. We assume that the system is in the universality class of either the Pfaffian or anti-Pfaffian state. When the number of charge e/4 quasiparticles in the interferometer is odd, there is no interference pattern. However, the coupling between a charge e/4 quasiparticle and the edge causes it to be absorbed by…
