West, Science 316, 1007 (2007). Theory: O. L. Berman, Yu. E. Lozovik, and D. W. Snoke, Phys Rev B 77, (2008). Starting with the quantum well exciton energy higher than the cavity photon mode, stress was used to reduce the exciton energy and bring it into resonance with the photon mode. At the point of zero detuning, line narrowing and strong increase of the photoluminescence are seen. An in-plane harmonic potential was created for the polaritons, which allows trapping, potentially making possible Bose-Einstein condensation of polaritons analogous to trapped atoms. Drift of the polaritons into this trap was demonstrated.
