Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the system of two localized anyons in the lowest Landau level and show how anyonic signatures extrapolating between antibunching tendencies of fermions and bunching tendencies of bosons become manifest in the two-particle correlations. Toward probing these correlations, we discuss the influence of a saddle potential on these anyons; we exploit analogies from quantum optics to analyze the time evolution of such a system. We show that the saddle potential can act as a beam-splitter akin to those in bosonic and fermionic systems, and can provide a means of measuring the derived anyonic signatures.
