Non-Linear Dynamical Effects in Semiconductor Microcavities and Early Stages of Continuous Wave Experiments on Cavity-Polaritons Include Some of the Topics Explored Inside the Physics of Semiconductor Microcavities.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of The Physics of Semiconductor Microcavities: From Fundamentals to Nanoscale Devices to their offering.

Electron and photon confinement in semiconductor nanostructures is one of the most active areas in solid state research. Written by leading experts in solid state physics, this book provides both a comprehensive review as well as an excellent introduction to fundamental and applied aspects of light-matter coupling in microcavities.

Topics covered include parametric amplification and polariton liquids, quantum fluid and non-linear dynamical effects and parametric instabilities, polariton squeezing. Bose-Einstein condensation of microcavity polaritons, spin dynamics of exciton-polaritons, polariton correlation produced by parametric scattering, progress in III-nitride distributed Bragg reflectors using AlInN/GaN materials, high efficiency planar MCLEDs, exciton-polaritons and nanoscale cavities in photonic crystals, and MBE growth of high finesse microcavities.

About the author

Editor Benoit Deveaud is director of the Institute of Quantum Photonics and Electronics at the EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. The institute focuses on a wide range of research topics ranging from quantum description of light and light-matter interactions to the very direct applications of such concepts in the information and communication technologies. His team takes an active part in the "Photonics Quantum" National Center of excellence, of which he is the Director since July 1, 2005. He is a also divisional editor of Physical Review Letters since 2001.
