The filling fraction 1/k double-layered quantum Hall state has been shown to exhibit many superfluid properties. Here we propose the notion of “sideways tunnelling", in which a current tunnels between two such 1/k states through an incompressible fractional quantum Hall state of filling fraction 2/m. We predict an alternating tunnelling current or a narrow-band noise at a frequency , as a consequence of the tunnelling of e/m fractional charges.
