Quantum confined Rydberg excitons in Cu2O nanoparticles

The quantum confinement of Rydberg excitons is an important step towards exploiting their large nonlinearities for quantum applications. We observe Rydberg excitons in natural nanoparticles of Cu$_2$O . We resolve up to the principal quantum number …

Ultralong temporal coherence in optically trapped exciton-polariton condensates

We investigate an optically trapped exciton-polariton condensate and observe temporal coherence beyond 1 ns in duration. Due to the reduction of the spatial overlap with the thermal reservoir of excitons, the coherence time of the trapped condensate …
