Composite fermion dynamics in half-filled Landau levels of graphene

Wójs, Arkadiusz, Möller, Gunnar, Cooper, Nigel R (2011) Composite fermion dynamics in half-filled Landau levels of graphene. Acta Physica Polonica A, 119 . p. 592. ISSN 0587-4246. (doi:10.12693/APhysPolA.119.592)


We report on exact-diagonalization studies of correlated many-electron states in the half-filled Landau levels of graphene, including pseudospin (valley) degeneracy. We demonstrate that the polarized Fermi sea of non-interacting composite fermions remains stable against a pairing transition in the lowest two Landau levels. However, it undergoes spontaneous depolarization, which is unprotected owing to the lack of single-particle pseudospin splitting. These results suggest the absence of the Pfaffian phase in graphene.
