We report magneto-transport measurements in wide GaAs quantum wells with tunable density to probe the stability of the fractional quantum Hall effect at filling factor $\nu = $ 5/2 in the vicinity of the crossing between Landau levels (LLs) belonging to the different (symmetric and antisymmetric) electric subbands. When the Fermi energy ($E_F$) lies in the excited-state LL of the symmetric subband, the 5/2 quantum Hall state is surprisingly stable and gets even stronger near this crossing, anddoi:10.1103/physrevlett.107.176805 pmid:22107557 fatcat:3hmm6hldnrbzrffgubp2vukbca
