1307.1892 (Alexander C. Archer et al.)

Nature of the Crystal Phase between 1/5 and 2/9 Fractional Hall Liquids    [PDF]

Alexander C. Archer, Kwon Park, Jainendra K. Jain
We show that the solid phase between the 1/5 and 2/9 fractional quantum Hall states arises from an extremely delicate interplay between type-1 and type-2 composite fermion crystals, clearly demonstrating its nontrivial, strongly correlated character. We also compute the elastic constants of the crystal phase in a wide range of fillings, and find that they exhibit non-monotonous behavior as a function of the filling factor, possibly leading to distinctive experimental signatures that can help mark the phase boundaries separating different kinds of crystals.
