Gippius, N.A., Shelykh, I.A., Solnyshkov, D.D., Gavrilov, S.S., Rubo, Yuri G., Kavokin, A. V., Tikhodeev, S. G. and Malpuech, G (2007) Polarization multistability of cavity polaritons Physical Review Letters, 98, (23), p. 236401. (doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.98.236401).

Record type: Article


New effects of polarization multistability and polarization hysteresis in a coherently driven polariton system in a semiconductor microcavity are predicted and theoretically analyzed. The multistability arises due to polarization-dependent polariton-polariton interactions and can be revealed in polarization resolved photoluminescence experiments. The pumping power required to observe this effect is 4 orders of magnitude lower than the characteristic pumping power in conventional bistable optical systems.
