Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider ballistic transport of composite fermions in a realistic microconstriction. An unambiguous signature of such transport is revealed: the linear conductance increases with increasing magnetic field near filling factor 1/2, and then drops abruptly in a narrow magnetic field interval.
