ABSTRACT Microcavity polaritons, quasiparticles that arise from the strong coupling of a quantum well exciton to a microcavity photon, is a fascinating platform for studying light-matter interaction. These quasiparticles inherit the properties of both constituents: a small effective mass due to the photon part and nonlinear interactions due to the exciton part. In particular ... read full abstract
