Mid- and far-IR optoelectronic devices
based on Bose-Einstein condensation
MIR-Bose: “Mid- and far-IR optoelectronic devices based on Bose-Einstein condensation” is a FET-Open collaborative project funded by European Commission H2020 program. The MIR-Bose project has kick-started on January 1St, 2017 and will run for 4 years.
The MIR-Bose Project is coordinated by Raffaele Colombelli from the Paris Sud University (France) and mobolises 7 partners.
The Objectives of the Project:
Optoelectronic devices typically operate in the weak coupling regime between light and matter, for example in conventional lasers which rely on population inversion to achieve optical gain. Recently, however, there has been a surge of interest in quantum systems operating instead in the strong coupling regime, when the coupling strength of the light-matter interaction is so strong that new states – cavity polaritons – are created, that are partially light, and partially material excitation.
