On the condensation of polaritons


Bose–Einstein condensates (BECs), the “fifth state of matter,” have in fact been discovered by chance both in liquid helium and in superconductors. Since these early encounters, BECs have been sought for, both in atom vapors and in solids. Here we report on the case of exciton polaritons. We discuss the experimental observation of macroscopically occupied… (More)
