Controlled switching between quantum states in the exciton–polariton condensate
- 71 Downloads
Optically controlled switching between modes of a polariton laser having different symmetries has been demonstrated experimentally. The microscopic shift of the optical excitation spot dramatically changes the shape of the polariton condensate formed in a cylindrical micropillar on the basis of the planar semiconductor microcavity. Switching between the ring and lobed condensate is achieved owing to the violation of the cylindrical symmetry of the effective potential formed by the lateral surface of the pillar and by the cloud of incoherent excitons created by optical pumping.
