Recently, it has been possible to design independently contacted electron-hole bilayers (EHBLs) with carrierdensities cm2 in each layer and a separation of 10–20 nm in a GaAs/AlGaAs system. In these EHBLs,the interlayer interaction can be stronger than the intralayer interactions. Theoretical works have indicated thepossibility of a very rich phase diagram in EHBLs consisting of excitonic superfluid phases, charge densitywaves, and Wigner crystals. Experiments have revealed that the Coulomb drag on the hole layer shows strongnonmonotonic deviations from a behaviour expected for Fermi-liquids at low temperatures. Simultaneously,an unexpected insulating behaviour in the single-layer resistances (at a highly “metallic” regime with) also appears in both layers despite electron mobilities of above and hole mobilitiesover . Experimental data also indicates that the point of equal densities () is not special.
