Spinor excitations in exciton-polariton condensates

Konrad Rolle, EPFL, Lausanne, Schweiz


We first define the object of study in terms of a specific excitation and pumping regime of semiconductor microcavities. Then, we discuss the effect of interactions and magnetic fields on these excitations. In what follows, we are mainly concerned with Gross-Pitaevskii modeling, for different symmetries (1D and radial) of the problem. The tools developed for treatment of the latter are combined in simulations inspired by scattering theory.
