Energetics of Pfaffian-AntiPfaffian Domains

27 Sep 2019 Simon Steven H. Ippoliti Matteo Zaletel Michael P. Rezayi Edward H.

In several recent works it has been proposed that, due to disorder, the experimentally observed nu=5/2 quantum Hall state could be microscopically composed of domains of Pfaffian order along with domains of AntiPfaffian order. We numerically examine the energetics required for forming such domains and conclude that for the parameters appropriate for recent experiments, such domains would not occur...
