Synthesising non-Hermitian gauge fields for microcavity exciton polaritons
This project aims to realise various useful artificial gauge fields for cavity photons and exciton polaritons. These fields are expected to be non-Hermitian and can be used to combine effects of non-Hermiticity and topology, e.g. topological edge states and non-Hermitian skin effect. Realising these non-Hermitian fields is an important step towards practical applications of exciton-polariton condensates and superfluids.
Exciton polaritons in 2D atomically thin materials
This experimental project will focus on nvestigation of strong light-matter coupling and exciton polaritons in novel atomically thin materials.
Non-equilibrium quantum condensation of microcavity exciton polaritons
This project combines theoretical and experimental research on exciton polaritons in semiconductor microcavities. We investigate emergent quantum phenomena far from equilibrium and their applications for next-generation optoelectronics devices.
