Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a polariton description of a semiconductor double microcavity system. The polariton formalism is derived from a microscopic theory for the exciton fields inside the quantum wells coupled to the confined optical cavity fields in a double cavity system. The polariton picture helps simplify theoretical studies of the observed phenomena in the double cavity system, such as nonlinear optical spin Hall effect.
