- Table Of ContentsINTRODUCTION From electronics to optoelectronics From Louis De Broglie to condensation of dilute atomic gases Condensation and optoelectronics: a dream becomes reality Overview CONDENSATION AND EXCITON-POLARITONS Bosons and condensation Microcavities Polaritons Polariton condensates EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES AND SAMPLE Sample Lasers Setup Methods SYNCHRONIZATION OF POLARITON CONDENSATES Introduction Condensation in a synchronized state Desynchronized condensates The power dependence of the energy difference On the pre-existence of the synchronized state From a simplistic approach to a full model Conclusions CONDENSATION IN MULTIPLE MODES Introduction The effect of the excitation laser on the condensate spectrum Preliminary observations Real space tomography Momentum space tomography On the coherence of the individual modes Theoretical approach Conclusions CONVENTIONAL VORTICITY Introduction The phase singularity The density at the vortex core Theoretical model Conclusions UNCONVENTIONAL VORTICITY Introduction Phase and density properties of HQVs Polarization resolved interferometry Density measurements Probing the mutual coherence between the two spin components The effect of the polarization splitting Conclusions DYNAMICS OF SPONTANEOUS VORTICES Introduction Time integrated vortex observation Time resolved interferometric measurements. Theoretical approach Vortex dynamics at the early stages of condensation Conclusions DYNAMICS OF POLARITON CONDENSATES IN DOUBLE WELLS Introduction Locating the polariton Josephson junction Methods for the evaluation of the oscillations Low excitation regime High excitation power regime Spectroscopic analysis Theoretical approach Conclusions CONCLUSIONS AND OUTLOOK
- Author BiographyKonstantinos Lagoudakis obtained a BSc in Physics at the National Kapodistrian University of Athens in 2005 followed by an MSc in Optics and Photonics at Imperial College London in 2006. In 2010 he completed his PhD in Photonics at the Ecole polytechnique federale de Lausanne (EPFL) in the Laboratory of Quantum Optoelectronics, where he stayed for another year as a post-doctoral fellow. The outstanding quality of his PhD thesis led to the EPFL Doctorate Award and EPFL Press Distinction. Since 2012, he has been working on on-chip non-classical light sources and developing new technologies for quantum information processing in the Nanoscale and Quantum Photonics Laboratory at Stanford University as the recipient of the Swiss National Foundation advanced researcher fellowship.
