Recently reported large values of exciton-polariton nonlinearity of transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) monolayers coupled to optically resonant structures approach the values characteristic for GaAs-based systems in the regime of strong light-matter coupling. Contrary to the latter, TMD-based polaritonic devices remain operational at ambient conditions and therefore have greater poten-tial for practical nanophotonic applications. Here we present the study of the nonlinear properties of Ta 2…

Spatiotemporal continuum generation in polariton waveguides

The generation of a spatiotemporal optical continuum is demonstrated in a highly nonlinear exciton–polariton waveguide using extremely low excitation powers and a submillimeter device suitable for integrated optics applications.

Highly nonlinear trion-polaritons in a monolayer semiconductor

Strong Kerr-like nonlinearities are reported by employing efficient optical transitions of charged excitons (trions) observed in semiconducting transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) by hybridising trions in monolayer MoSe2 at low electron densities with a microcavity mode exhibiting strong nonlinear interactions.

Nonlinear polaritons in a monolayer semiconductor coupled to optical bound states in the continuum

This work mixes the optical BIC in a photonic crystal slab with excitons in the atomically thin semiconductor MoSe 2 to form nonlinear exciton-polaritons with a Rabi splitting of 27 meV, exhibiting large interaction-induced spectral blueshifts and providing for the enhancement and control of polariton–polariton interactions and the resulting nonlinear optical effects.

Motional narrowing, ballistic transport, and trapping of room-temperature exciton polaritons in an atomically-thin semiconductor

This work creates a non-trivial potential landscape for polaritons in monolayer WS2, and demonstrates their trapping and ballistic propagation across tens of micrometers, and shows that the effects of dielectric disorder are dramatically reduced, leading to motional narrowing and preserved partial coherence.

Direct measurement of polariton-polariton interaction strength in the Thomas-Fermi regime of exciton-polariton condensation

Bosonic condensates of exciton polaritons (light-matter quasiparticles in a semiconductor) provide a solid-state platform for studies of non-equilibrium quantum systems with a spontaneous macroscopic

Demonstration of dipolar-induced enhancement of parametric effects in polariton waveguides

Exciton-polaritons are hybrid light-matter excitations arising from the non-perturbative coupling of a photonic mode and an excitonic resonance. Behaving as interacting photons, they show optical

Spatial coherence of room-temperature monolayer WSe2 exciton-polaritons in a trap

These findings validate the potential of atomically thin crystals as versatile components of coherent light-sources, and in valleytronic applications at room temperature, and demonstrate the strong light-matter coupling between microcavity photons and excitons inatomically thin WSe2.

Exciton-polaritons are mixed light-matter particles offering a versatile solid state platform to study many-body physical effects. In this work we demonstrate an electrically controlled polariton

Atomically thin transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) possess a number of properties that make them attractive for realizing room-temperature polariton devices1. An ideal platform for manipulating

Van der Waals heterostructure polaritons with moiré-induced nonlinearity.

A moiré polariton system combines strong nonlinearity and microscopic-scale tuning of matter excitations using cavity engineering and long-range light coherence, providing a platform with which to study collective phenomena from tunable arrays of quantum emitters.
