Paired composite-fermion wave functions

Möller, Gunnar, Simon, S H (2008) Paired composite-fermion wave functions. Physical Review B: Condensed Matter and Materials Physics, 77 (7). 075319. ISSN 0163-1829. (doi:10.1103/PhysRevB.77.075319) (KAR id:55537)


We construct a family of BCS paired composite fermion wavefunctions that generalize, but remain in the same topological phase as, the Moore-Read Pfaffian state for the half-filled Landau level. It is shown that for a wide range of experimentally relevant inter-electron interactions the groundstate can be very accurately represented in this form.
