Generation and dynamics of vortex lattices in coherent exciton-polariton fields

By T.C.H. Liew, Yuri G. Rubo and A.V. Kavokin


Vortex dynamics in coherent ensembles of exciton polaritons (condensates) is studied in the framework of the polarization-dependent Gross-Pitaevskii equation. Vortex lattices can be resonantly excited in the polariton field by the interference of three or more optical pumps. Vortex-antivortex pairs can also appear in polariton condensates due to scattering with disorder. The nonlinear vortex dynamics is characterized by interactions of vortex cores and vortex-antivortex recombination
