Abstract

Acceleration of the in-plane motion of photons inside the cavity wedge is a well known effect. Acceleration of exciton-polaritons in the same system seemed to be impossible because of the cavity selection rules. Nevertheless, we have observed it experimentally by means of time- and spatially-resolved reflection spectroscopy. The phenomenon is explained in terms of elastic scattering of the polaritons between optically forbidden and allowed states.
