Abstract

We show that planar semiconductor microcavities in the strong coupling regime can be used as sources of stimulated terahertz radiation. Emitted terahertz photons would have a frequency equal to the splitting of the cavity polariton modes. The optical transition between upper and lower polariton branches is allowed due to mixing of the upper polariton state with one of the excited exciton states and is stimulated in the polariton laser regime
