In two dimensions, the laws of physics permit the existence of anyons, particles with fractional statistics which are neither Fermi nor Bose. That is, upon exchange of two such particles, the quantum state of a system acquires a phase which is neither 0 nor , but can be any value. The elementary excitations Laughlin quasiparticles of a fractional quantum Hall fluid have a fractional electric charge and are expected to obey fractional statistics. In this paper we report experimental realization… CONTINUE READING
