    Zero-bias conductance anomaly in bilayer quantum Hall systems

    Full text link
    Bilayer quantum Hall system at total filling factor ν=1\nu=1 shows a rich variety of broken symmetry ground states because of the competition between the interlayer and intralayer Coulomb interactions. When the layers are sufficiently close, a bilayer system develops spontaneous interlayer phase-coherence that manifests itself through a spectacular enhancement of the zero-bias interlayer tunneling conductance. We present a theory of this tunneling conductance anomaly, and show that the zero-bias conductance is proportional to the square of the {\it quasiparticle} tunneling amplitude.Comment: 3 pages, 1 figure.
