Composite fermions by Jainendra K Jain( Book )

"When electrons are confined to two dimensions, cooled to near absolute zero temperature, and subjected to a strong magnetic field, they form an exotic new collective state of matter, which rivals superfluidity and superconductivity in both its scope and the elegance of the phenomena associated with it. Investigations into this state began in the 1980s with the observations of integral and fractional quantum Hall effects, which are among the most important discoveries in condensed matter physics. The fractional quantum Hall effect and a stream of other unexpected findings are explained by a new class of particles: composite fermions. A self-contained and pedagogical introduction to the physics and experimental manifestations of composite fermions, this textbook is ideal for graduate students and academic researchers in this rapidly developing field. The topics covered include the integral and fractional quantum Hall effects, the composite fermion Fermi sea, geometric observations of composite fermions, various kinds of excitations, the role of spin, edge state transport, electron solid, and bilayer physics. The author also discusses fractional braiding statistics and fractional local charge. This textbook contains numerous exercises to reinforce the concepts presented in the book."--Publisher's description
No-nonsense Physicist : An overview of Gabriele Giuliani's work and life by Marco Polini( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a compact personal biography and a collection of works by Gabriele F. Giuliani - a distinguished condensed matter theorist who made important contributions to our understanding of collective effects in electronic materials. In 2012 he passed away after a long battle with cancer. In addition, the book features scientific contributions from some of Prof. Giuliani's former students and collaborators and a number of personal recollections by friends and colleagues which shed light on the complex, multifaceted personality of a physicist who was also a passionate soccer player and formula Ford pilot
Study of correlations in fractional quantum Hall effect by Chuntai Shi( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bulk two-dimensional electron systems in a strong perpendicular magnetic field exhibit the fascinating phenomenon of fractional quantum Hall effect. Composite fermion theory was developed in the process of understanding the fractional quantum Hall effect and was proven to work successfully for the FQHE and even beyond. In this dissertation, we explore the effect of the strong correlation between electrons in several cases. All of them belong to the category of 2DES in strong perpendicular magnetic field and they are listed below: (i)A fractional quantum Hall island surrounded by a bulk fractional quantum Hall state with a different filling factor. Specifically, we study the resonant tunneling composite fermions through their quasibound states around the island. A rich set of possible transitions are found and the possible relevance to an interesting experiment is discussed. Also, we discuss the subtlety of separating the effect of fractional braiding statistics from other factors. (ii) Correlated states of a quantum dot, at high magnetic fields, assuming four electrons with two components. Such a dot can be realized by reducing the two lateral dimensions of a 2DES tremendously. Both the liquid states and crystallites (the latter occurring at large angular momenta) of four electrons in terms of composite fermions are considered. Residual interaction between composite fermions is shown to leads to complex spin correlations. (iii) Bilayer quantum Hall effect at total filling $ u_T=5$. This can accommodate an excitonic superfluid state at small layer separations just like at $ u_T=1$. At large layer separations, however, $ u_T=5$ state evolves into uncorrelated $ u=5/2$ fractional quantum Hall states in both layers, in contrast to uncorrelated composite Fermi sea in $ u_T=1$ case. We focus on finding the critical layer separation at which the correlation between electrons on different layers are destroyed. Effects due to the finite width of the layers are also considered
