Coherence properties of polaritons in semiconductor microcavities

In this work we present the coherent control of polariton parametric scattering with weak phase locked probe pulses. It is demonstrated that the signal emission arising from the parametric scattering is completely coherent for moderate excitation power, whereas at high pump density the dynamics appears less coherent due to the depletion of the pump polariton reservoir. It is furthermore demonstrated that the phase of the probe pulses controls the emission from signal, pump, and idler at the same time.
