Polaritons

Abstract

Linear response theory for a bulk dielectric is used to obtain the electric-field fluctuation spectrum. The form of the spectrum provides the bulk polariton dispersion relation and damping. Measurements of bulk polaritons by light scattering and nonlinear optical processes are reviewed. The linear response theory is extended to a dielectric medium with a flat surface, thus providing the surface polariton dispersion relation and damping. Measurements by attenuated total reflection, light scattering and nonlinear optical processes are briefly reviewed. Both phonon-polaritons and exciton-polaritons are considered.
