Symmetry in the insulator–quantum-Hall–insulator transitions observed in a Ge/SiGe quantum well


We examine the magnetic-field-driven insulator-quantum-Hall-insulator transitions of the two-dimensional hole gas in a Ge/SiGe quantum well. We observe direct transitions between low and high magnetic-field insulators and the (Formula presented) quantum Hall state. With increasing magnetic field, the transitions from insulating to quantum Hall and quantum Hall to insulating are very similar with respect to their transport properties. We address the temperature dependence around the transitions and show that the characteristic energy scale for the high-field transition is larger. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
