Abstract: The possibility of realizing non-Abelian statistics and

utilizing it for topological quantum computation (TQC) has generated

widespread interest. However, the non-Abelian statistics that can be

realized in most accessible proposals is not powerful enough for

universal TQC. In this talk, I will consider a simple bilayer

fractional quantum Hall system with 1/3 Laughlin state in each layer.

Then I will show that a certain type of interlayer couplings which are

experimentally relevant in higher Landau levels can drive a

topological phase transition to an exotic non-Abelian state with

famous `Fibonacci’ anyon, whose non-Abelian statistics is powerful

enough for universal TQC.
