Workshop on low-dimensional exciton polaritons


Centre de Théorie en Physique de Grenoble (CTPG)

Workshop on low-dimensional

exciton polaritons

 Grenoble, June 15 2011
 Amphithéâtre de la Maison Jean Perrin
sponsored by ERC


The aim of the workshop is to study the theoretical aspects of low-dimensional quantum fluids made of exciton polaritons, exploring the interplay of non-equilibrium aspects and effects of confinement in the polariton fluids. Special attention will be given to the influence of disorder which is unavoidable in the current experimental realizations.

No inscription is necessary.
