Abstract

Over the past decade, spontaneously emerging patterns in the density of polaritons in semiconductor microcavities were found to be a promising candidate for all-optical switching. But recent approaches were mostly restricted to scalar fields, did not benefit from the polariton’s unique spin-dependent properties, and utilized switching based on hexagon far-field patterns with 60° beam switching (i.e. in the far field the beam propagation direction is switched by 60°). Since hexagon far-field patterns are challenging, we present here an approach for a linearly polarized spinor field, that allows for a transistor-like (e.g., crucial for cascadability) orthogonal beam switching, i.e. in the far field the beam is switched by 90°. We show that switching specifications such as amplification and speed can be adjusted using only optical means.

Figures (4)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Sketch of the system and excitation geometry. (a) a quantum well (QW) is embedded between two DBR mirrors, forming a semiconductor microcavity. A linearly polarized pump beam is sent onto the cavity in normal incidence and excites a coherent polariton field. Above the instability threshold, the cavity spontaneously emits two off-axis beams. (b) Top view of the excitation scheme. Thin arrows indicate polarization states. The spontaneously emitted beams have opposite in-plane momentum, parallel to the pump’s polarization plane. They are polarized orthogonally to the pump polarization. The initial far-field pattern can be switched by an additional weak control beam, polarized orthogonal to the pump polarization, entering the cavity in oblique incidence in a direction 90° rotated with respect to the initial emission direction.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 Lower polariton branch in the two-dimensional momentum space and excitation scheme: pump-polaritons with finite momentum are excited 4 meV above the polariton ground-state. Modes on the LPB eligible for a self-sustained OPO are marked red. The spontaneous emergence of the preferred two-spot pattern oriented along the pump’s tilting axis (x-axis) can be switched off triggering an OPO in the y-direction.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 The initial far-field pattern, emerging in the cross-linear polarization channel, is shown in the momentum space (a). Switching on the control beam (indicated by a white square), a two spot-pattern emerges in the y-direction, and the initial pattern is suppressed (b). The intensity of the initial state (green) and of the target state (blue) during the switching is shown for a low (Pcontrol = 7.1 μW) and a high (Pcontrol = 8.2 μW) control intensity in c and d, respectively. The switch on and off times of the control beam are marked by vertical lines.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 (a) Dependence of switching time on the applied control intensity for systems with two different pump momenta kpump = (kpump, 0). Each minimum control intensity is marked by a vertical line. (b) Dependence of maximum gain and minimum control intensity on pump momentum (tilt away from normal incidence). (c) Back switch time after switching off the control beam (blue line) and spontaneous built-up time of the initial pattern (green line) as a function of pump tilt.
