High-temperature Bose-Einstein condensation of photonlike atom-light polaritons

We propose a method for obtaining a Bose-Einstein condensate of an ideal one-dimensional gas of atom-light polaritons of the lower branch in a trap at high temperatures (on the order of room temperature or higher). The system under consideration is an atomic ensemble that interacts with a single-mode quantum electromagnetic field in the presence of optical collisions with a high-pressure buffer gas. The possibility of using biconical waveguides for revealing the predicted phenomenon is discussed. The dynamics of the polariton condensate in the trap is investigated on the basis of the variational approach.
