Detuning-controlled internal oscillations in an exciton-polariton condensate
We theoretically analyze exciton-photon oscillatory dynamics within a homogenous polariton condensate in presence of energy detuning between the cavity and quantum well modes. Whereas pure Rabi oscillations consist of the particle exchange between the photon and exciton components in the polariton system without any oscillations of their quantum phases, we demonstrate that any non-zero detuning results in oscillations of the relative phase of the photon and exciton macroscopic wave functions. Different initial conditions reveal a variety of behaviors of the relative phase between the two condensates, and a crossover from Rabi-like to Josephson-like oscillations is predicted
We discuss coherent oscillations between two coupled quantum states of a Bose–Einstein condensate in two-dimensional space at zero temperature. In the system we consider, weak interparticle repulsive interactions occur between the particles in state one only, while the state two particles remain non-interacting. Our theoretical analysis of the coupled generalized Gross–Pitaevskii equations reveals various regimes of oscillatory dynamics for the relative phase and population imbalance between the two subsystems of the condensate, with the energy detuning between the two states being the controlling parameter of the system.
We study the behavior of exciton polaritons in an optical microcavity with an embedded semiconductor quantum well. We use a two-component exciton-photon approach formulated in terms of path integral formalism. In order to describe spatial distributions of the exciton and photon condensate densities, the two coupled equations of the Gross-Pitaevskii type are derived. For a homogeneous system, we find the noncondensate photon and exciton spectra, calculate the coefficients of transformation from the exciton-photon basis to the lower-upper polariton basis, and obtain the exciton and photon occupation numbers of the lower and upper polariton branches for nonzero temperatures. For an inhomogeneous system, the set of coupled equations of the Bogoliubov–de Gennes type is derived. The equations govern the spectra and spatial distributions of noncondensate photons and excitons.
The dynamics of a two-component Davydov-Scott (DS) soliton with a small mismatch of the initial location or velocity of the high-frequency (HF) component was investigated within the framework of the Zakharov-type system of two coupled equations for the HF and low-frequency (LF) fields. In this system, the HF field is described by the linear Schrödinger equation with the potential generated by the LF component varying in time and space. The LF component in this system is described by the Korteweg-de Vries equation with a term of quadratic influence of the HF field on the LF field. The frequency of the DS soliton`s component oscillation was found analytically using the balance equation. The perturbed DS soliton was shown to be stable. The analytical results were confirmed by numerical simulations.
Radiation conditions are described for various space regions, radiation-induced effects in spacecraft materials and equipment components are considered and information on theoretical, computational, and experimental methods for studying radiation effects are presented. The peculiarities of radiation effects on nanostructures and some problems related to modeling and radiation testing of such structures are considered.
