- We construct a family of BCS paired composite-fermion wave functions that generalize but remain in the same topological phase as the Moore-Read Pfaffian state for the half-filled Landau level. It is shown that for a wide range of experimentally relevant interelectron interactions, the ground state can be very accurately represented in this form. © 2008 The American Physical Society.
