Analogue Polariton Simulator - EDBM34
Start Date: 01/01/2018,     End Date: 30/12/2020

The "Analogue Polaritaron Simulator" project aims to develop a new platform of analogue quantum simulators based on the use of polariton concentrates. Due to the great flexibility that these systems provide and their room temperature functionality, the polariton simulators have emerged in recent years as one of the most promising systems to make the transition from classical computers to the era of quantum simulators. A prerequisite for highlighting the quantum behavior of these systems is the strong interaction between polaritones responsible for the non-linear behavior of the system. In order to achieve this goal, we plan to design and study appropriate structures that promote on-site interaction by increasing the bipolar polariton interactions and use lateral photonic confinement. The ability to visualize and reproduce many body condensed matter problems in a macroscopic system of interacting polariton condensates and help us investigate a variety of physical phenomena that are not easily accessible with conventional computers.
