Topological Phase and Half-Integer Orbital Angular Momenta in Circular Quantum Dots

Kuleshov V., Mur V., Narozhny N., Yu.E. Lozovik.

We show that there exists a non-trivial topological phase in circular two-dimensional quantum dots with an odd number of electrons. The possible non-zero value of this phase is explained by axial symmetry of two-dimensional quantum systems. The particular value of this phase (1995). Hence, these data may be considered as the first experimental evidence for the existence of topological phase leading to half-integer quantization of the orbital angular momentum in circular quantum dots with an odd number of electrons.
