We study excited states and excitation energies of the spins and pseudospins in different phases of the ν = 2/3 bilayer quantum Hall states using a GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure sample. The phase boundaries are determined by the magnetoresistance measurements. The thermal activation energies at the perpendicular and titled magnetic fields reveal some characteristics of the spin and pseudospin skyrmion excitations in the special phases. We also use the theoretical models to fit the experimental data and obtain the effective numbers of the flipped spins or pseudospins per skyrmion.

    We report low-field magnetoresistance measurements performed on a GaAs/AlGaAs quantum well with a strong in-plane magnetic field (B∥). As the parallel magnetic field increases, the weak antilocalisation is destroyed. This is folllowed by the suppression of the weak localisation at higher...
