Bose polaron in a quantum fluid of light
We study the Bose polaron problem in a nonequilibrium setting, by considering an impurity embedded in a quantum fluid of light realized by exciton-polaritons in a microcavity, subject to a coherent
Coherently driven microcavity-polaritons and the question of superfluidity
It is shown that the superfluid response—the difference between responses to longitudinal and transverse forces—is zero for coherently driven polaritons, a consequence of the gapped excitation spectrum caused by external phase locking.
Optically-Excited Polariton Condensates
The observation of polariton condensation with the help of high-quality optical microcavities was a long sought goal in solid-state research. Optical pumping of planar microresonator structures
Polariton condensation in a strain-compensated planar microcavity with InGaAs quantum wells
The investigation of intrinsic interactions in polariton condensates is currently limited by the photonic disorder of semiconductor microcavity structures. Here, we use a strain compensated planar
Microcavity Polaritons for Quantum Simulation
Quantum simulations are one of the pillars of quantum technologies. These simulations provide insight in fields as varied as high energy physics, many‐body physics, or cosmology to name only a few.
Weak lasing in one-dimensional polariton superlattices
The first observation of the weak lasing phase in a one-dimensional condensate of exciton–polaritons subject to a periodic potential is reported, to the authors' knowledge.
Polariton fluids for analogue gravity physics
It is demonstrated how optically generating a defect in a polariton microcavity enables the creation of one- and two-dimensional, transsonic fluid flows and it is shown that this highly tuneable method permits thecreation of horizons.
Polariton-polariton Interactions Revealed in a One-dimensional Whispering Gallery Microcavity.
Experimental observation of polariton-polariton interactions far beyond theory in a one-dimensional whispering gallery microcavity suggests that polaritonic interactions are far more complicated than expectation and should be re-examined in polariton physics and devices involving polariton interactions.
Managing the flow of liquid light
Strongly coupled light-matter systems can carry information over long distances and realize low threshold polariton lasing, condensation and superfluidity. These systems are highly non-equilibrium in
