Polariton condensates' propagation is strongly dependent on the particular energy landscape the particles are moving upon, in which the geometry of the pathway laid for their movement plays a crucial role. Bends in the circuit's trajectories affect the condensates' speed and oblique geometries introduce an additional discretization of the polaritons' momenta due to the mixing of short and long axis wavevectors on the propagating eigenvalues. In this work, the nature of the propagation of…

Bloch Oscillations of Hybrid Light‐Matter Particles in a Waveguide Array

Bloch oscillations are a phenomenon well known from quantum mechanics where electrons in a lattice experience an oscillatory motion in the presence of an electric field gradient. Here, the authors

Optically induced topological spin-valley Hall effect for exciton polaritons

We consider exciton-polaritons in a honeycomb lattice of micropillars subjected to circularly polarized (σ±) incoherent pumps, which are arranged to form two domains in the lattice. We predict that

Direct observation of Dirac cones and a flatband in a honeycomb lattice for polaritons.

Experimental studies of honeycomb lattices where the polariton low-energy dispersion is analogous to that of electrons in graphene, using energy-resolved photoluminescence to directly observe Dirac cones, around which the dynamics of polaritons is described by the Dirac equation for massless particles.
