Solid-state physics - Polaritronics in view
Polaritons are an odd cross-breed of a particle, half-matter, half-light. They could offer an abundant crop of new and improved optoelectronic devices — a promise already being fulfilled.
Article requested by the editors following the publication of the work of Tsintzos at al in Nature on the demonstration of a light emiting diode working with polaritons.
