ABSTRACT

Recent theories suggest that the quasiparticles that populate certain quantum Hall states should exhibit exotic braiding statistics that could be used to build topological quantum gates. Confined systems that support such states at a filling fraction ν=5/2 are of particular interest for testing these predictions. Here, we report transport measurements of just such a system, which consists of a quantum point contact (QPC) in a two-dimensional GaAs/AlGaAs electron gas that itself exhibits a well-developed fractional quantum Hall effect at a bulk filling fraction νbulk=5/2. We observe plateau-like features at an effective filling fraction of νQPC=5/2 for lithographic contact widths of 1.2 μm and 0.8 μm, but not 0.5 μm. Transport near νQPC=5/2 in the QPCs is consistent with a picture of chiral Luttinger-liquid edge states with inter-edge tunnelling, suggesting that an incompressible state at νQPC=5/2 forms in this confined geometry.
