  • Anomalies of a nonequilibrium spinor polariton condensate in a magnetic field 

    Fischer, J.; Brodbeck, S.; Chernenko, A. V.; Lederer, I.; Rahimi-Iman, A.; Amthor, M.; Kulakovskii, V. D.; Worschech, L.; Kamp, M.; Durnev, M.; Schneider, C.; Kavokin, A. V.; Hoefling, S. (2014-03-06) - Journal article
    We observe a strong variation of the Zeeman splitting of exciton polaritons in microcavities when switching between the linear regime, the polariton lasing, and photon lasing regimes. In the polariton lasing regime the ...
  • Anomalous change in dielectric constant of CaCu3Ti4O12 under violet-to-ultraviolet irradiation
