We theoretically investigate a phase transition of Frenkel exciton polaritons in an organic nanofiber. Assuming a phenomenological Hamiltonian, we derive a mean field equation for the condensation after finding an effective action for the phenomenon using the functional integral method and stationary phase analysis. From a solution of the mean field equation, we construct a phase diagram for the condensation and highlight features that distinguish J- and H-aggregates. We also detail a connection with the superradiant phase transition, which has been studied using the Dicke model.
