Title s-wave paired composite fermions in quantum Hall bilayers. 
Abstract The half-filled Landau level is well described by a Fermi
liquid of composite fermions: two flux quanta attached to each electron
to form a composite object that feels no magnetic field. We study the
scenario where two half-filled Landau levels are brought closer and
closer together. This results in pairing between the composite fermions.
Using a trial wavefunction for s-wave pairing of composite fermions and
comparing to exact diagonalization, we deduce that the system undergoes
a BEC-BCS crossover as the distance between the two half-filled Landau
levels varies.
