Cavity Polaritons by Alexey Kavokin

By Alexey Kavokin

Quantity 32 of the sequence addresses some of the most swiftly constructing learn fields in physics: microcavities. Microcavities shape a base for fabrication of opto-electronic units of XXI century, particularly polariton lasers in accordance with a brand new actual precept with appreciate to traditional lasers proposed by means of Einstein in 1917. This ebook overviews a conception of all significant phenomena associated microcavities and exciton-polaritons and is orientated to the reader having no history in stable kingdom thought in addition to to the complicated readers drawn to thought of exciton-polaritons in microcavities. All significant experimental discoveries within the box are addressed besides. ?·The e-book is orientated to a common reader and is straightforward to learn for a non-specialist.?·Contains an outline of the main crucial results in physics of microcavities experimentally saw and theoretically anticipated through the contemporary decade such as:. ?·Bose-Einstein condensation at room temperature.?·Lasers with no inversion of population.?·Microcavity growth: optics of the XXI century!?·Frequently requested questions about microcavities and responses with out formulation. ?·Half-light-half-matter quasi-particles: base for the long run optoelectronic units

20) where q is the in-plane component of the wave-vector of light. 21) and ϕ is the incidence angle. 22) where 0 = 0 /cos ϕ. 3) take a more complex form. Assuming that the electric field vector lies in the xz-plane, its components are given by: ∂ 2 Ex iq ∂Pexc,z 4π 2 − + kz2 Ex = − 4π k Pexc,x , εB ∂z εB z ∂z2 kz2 Ez = ikx ∂Ex − 4πk02 Pexc,z . 24) Here 4πk02 Pexc,x (z) = Q (z) dz (z )Ex (z) (z ). 28) where x (z) = (z )Ex (z) (z ) dz . 28) can be resolved in the same manner as Eq. 7). Namely, multiplying Eqs.

Then, the simple transfer-matrix procedure will yield the equation for the eigenfrequencies of the cavity polaritons (dispersion equation). The effect of light polarisation on the polariton dispersion will be addressed in the last paragraph. 1. Reflection and Transmission of Light by Quantum Wells Containing Excitons Here we derive the amplitude reflection and transmission coefficients for light incident on a quantum well in the vicinity of the exciton resonance frequency.
