The fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE) states in the second Landau level have attracted growing interests and intensive theoretical and experimental investigations due to them possibly being non-Abelian states. Recently, we systematically examined the spin polarization of the FQHE states in a series of high quality, low density two dimensional electron systems. Evidence of spin transition was observed, suggesting a more complicated nature of the FQHE ground states in the second Landau level.
