Charged Spin Textures over the Moore-Read quantum Hall state

Kareljan Schoutens, Amsterdam

We study charged spin textures (CST) over the Moore-Read quantum Hall state at filling factor 5/2. We develop an algebraic framework and show that the pairing condition that is inherent in the Moore-Read state naturally leads to a class of charged spin textures, labeled by winding numbers [w_I, w_II]. The fundamental CST, with labels [1,0] and electric charge e/4, is identified with the polar core vortex known in the spin-1 BEC literature. The spin texture carried by the fusion product of fundamental CSTs is correlated with the fusion channel of the underlying non-Abelian quasiholes.
