Spin-Dependent Polariton Condensates
This project is focused on using the spin-anisotropic polariton-polariton interaction to create spin-sensitive all-optical circuit-like switches or other logical elements. Thus, we will utilize spin as an additional degree of freedom in optical information processing. The concept of “polariton neurons” as proposed by us as building blocks of polariton integrated circuits will be checked experimentally. We will demonstrate basic polariton logic elements, thereby paving the way towards spin-sensitive optical circuits that are also inscribed optically and can therefore be created and modified on demand.
