What if the quasiparticle has fractional charge?


For example, 1d kink has e/2 charge, if view kink like electrons in 1d (we know there is 1d charge density wave of electrons), is there CDW of kinks?

    $\begingroup$ Which quasiparticle? An "electron quasiparticle"? (In which case the short answer is no, it doesn't have fractional charge) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It isn't necessary to be electron quasiparticles, it is just some kind of quasiparticles which has charge. $\endgroup$
