Prediction of non-Abelian fractional quantum Hall effect at v=2+4/11

Koyena Bose


The fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE) in the second Landau level (SLL) likely stabilizes non-Abelian topological orders. Recently, a parton sequence has been proposed to capture many of the fractions observed in the SLL [Ajit C. Balram, SciPost Phys. {\bf 10}, 083 (2021)]. We consider the first member of this sequence which has not yet been studied, which is a non-Abelian state that occurs at $4/11$. As yet FQHE in the SLL at this fraction has not been observed in experiments. Nevertheless, by studying its competition with other candidate FQHE states in the SLL we show that this parton state might be viable. We also make predictions for experimentally measurable properties of the parton state which can distinguish it from other topological orders.
