The persistent current (Formula presented) in integrable models of multichannel rings with both short- and long-ranged interactions is investigated. (Formula presented) is found to oscillate in sign and increase in magnitude with increasing interaction strength due to interaction-induced correlations in the currents contributed by different channels. For sufficiently strong interactions, the contributions of all channels are found to add constructively, leading to a giant enhancement of (Formula presented) Numerical results confirm that this parity-locking effect is robust with respect to intersubband scattering.
