Resonant nonlinear studies of trapped 0D-microcavity polaritons
We performed studies on microcavity polaritons trapped along the three dimensions of space, under resonant excitation on a confined lower polariton state. We observed various nonlinear behaviors as a function of the pump power, without any apparent loss of the strong-coupling. That may be understood as effects of Coulomb interaction. Indications of bistable behaviors in the system are observed and discussed.
