Abstract: Via the application of a parallel magnetic field, we induce a single-layer to bilayer transition in two-dimensional electron systems confined to wide GaAs quantum wells and study the geometric resonance of composite fermions (CFS) with a periodic density modulation in our samples. The measurements reveal that CFS exist close to bilayer quantum Hall states, formed at Landau level filling factors ν=1 and 1/2. Near ν=1, the geometric resonance features are consistent with half the total electron density in the bilayer system, implying that CFS prefer to stay in separate layers and exhibit a two-component behavior. In contrast, close to ν=1/2, CFS appear single-layer-like (single component) as their resonance features correspond to the total density.
