We report on magnetoresistance measurements of two-dimensional electrons in AlAs quantum wells with mobilities up to 19 m2/V s. Fractional quantum Hall states at first- and second-order filling factors, and up to ν = 11/3, are observed. Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations of high-density samples reveal that electrons occupy two X-point valleys.
