Equilibrium Bose-Einstein condensation of exciton-polaritons, demonstrated with a long-lifetime microcavity [Phys. Rev. Lett. 118 , 016602 (2017)], has proven that driven-dissipative systems can undergo thermodynamic phase transitions in the limit where the quasiparticle lifetime exceeds the thermalization time. Here, we identify the role of dimensionality and polariton interactions in de-termining the degree of thermalization in optically generated traps. To distinguish the effect of trapping…

Laser operation and Bose-Einstein condensation: analogies and differences

After reviewing the interpretation of laser operation as a non-equilibrium Bose-Einstein condensation phase transition, we illustrate the novel features arising from the non-equilibrium nature of


The article introduces an entirely different system of conventions for data and computing, zzstructure, a generalized representation for all data and a new set of mechanisms for all computing, which is based on criss-crossed lists of cells which are assigned to dimensions.

Polariton Condensation and Lasing

The similarities and differences between polariton condensation in microcavities and standard lasing in a semiconductor cavity structure are reviewed. The recent experiments on "photon condensation"
