Paper Abstract

Polariton Lasers do not rely on stimulated emission of photons, a criterion that sets stringent conditions on the threshold current in a conventional laser. Therefore, they have the capability to outperform photon lasers in the weak coupling regime in terms of the threshold power consumption. We present the first successful realization of an electrically pumped polariton laser based on a GaAs/AlAs distributed Bragg reflector cavity. We have furthermore identified the system’s response to an applied magnetic field as a sensitive tool to distinguish a polariton laser from a standard VCSEL device in the weak light-matter coupling regime
