Abstract

Magnetotransport measurements in a clean two-dimensional electron system confined to a wide GaAs quantum well reveal that, when the electrons occupy two electric subbands, the sequences of fractional quantum Hall states observed at high fillings (ν>2) are distinctly different from those of a single-subband system. Notably, when the Fermi energy lies in the ground state Landau level of either of the subbands, no quantum Hall states are seen at the even-denominator ν=5/2 and 7/2 fillings; instead, the observed states are at ν=[i+p/(2p±1)], where i=2,3,4 and p=1,2,3, and include several new states at ν=13/5, 17/5, 18/5, 25/7, and 14/3.
