Abstract

We report on the room temperature polariton lasing and photon lasing in a ZnO-based hybrid microcavity under optical pumping. A series of experimental studies of the polariton lasing (exciton-photon detunings of δ = −119meV) in the strong-coupling regime are discussed and compared to a photon lasing (δ = −45meV) in the weak-coupling regime obtained in the same structure. The measured threshold power density (31.8kW/cm2) of polariton lasing is one order of magnitude lower than that of the photon lasing (318.2kW/cm2). In addition, the comparison between polariton lasing and photon lasing is done in terms of the linewidth broadening, blue-shift of the emission peak, and polarization.

1. Introduction

Semiconductor microcavities (MCs) are powerful in controlling interaction between light and matter. In a semiconductor MC, strong interaction between excitons and photons would produce new admixed quasiparticles, called exciton-polaritons [1]. Polaritons have a very light effective mass (typically 10−8 times the hydrogen atom), have controllable energy-momentum dispersion curves [2], and follow bosonic statistics at low densities. As a result, a wealth of intriguing phenomena and novel applications have been observed and extensively developed in the polariton system, including dynamical polariton Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) [36], polariton lasing [711] and polariton parametric oscillator [1214]. The bosonic nature of polaritons allows them to condense in the state with the lowest kinetic energy. The radiative decay of polaritons from the condensate creates laser-like coherent light, termed polariton lasers. Electronic population inversion is not necessary in such polariton lasers, as compared to conventional lasers, leading to ultra-low threshold coherent light sources. Furthermore, the extremely small effective mass of polaritons enables polariton condensation at higher critical temperatures compared to atomic system such as Sodium gas (Tc = 2μK) [15], which is crucial for practical applications.

Polariton lasers have been demonstrated in GaAs [3, 7] and CdTe [4] MCs, albeit only at cryogenic temperatures due to the small exciton binding energies in these materials. In contrast, wide-bandgap semiconductor materials have larger exciton binding energies [16], and have emerged as candidates for high temperature polariton lasers. Room temperature (RT) polariton lasing has been demonstrated recently in bulk and multiple-quantum-well (MQW) GaN MCs [8, 9], yet the exciton binding energy in GaN is only comparable to the thermal energy of lattice (kBT) at 300 K. Another wide-bandgap material, ZnO, possesses even larger oscillator strengths and exciton binding energies (~60 meV in the bulk layer) [1719]. RT photon lasing in ZnO MCs has been reported very recently [20], but RT ZnO polariton lasers have only been discussed in theory [17, 21]. In this study, we present ZnO polariton lasing at RT under optical pumping and compare the differences of the optical properties between polariton and photon lasers achieved in the same structure at different exciton-photon detunings.

2. Sample structure and experimental details

2.1 Sample structure and fabrication

The hybrid MC structure consists of a bulk ZnO 3λ/2 thick cavity sandwiched between a bottom AlN/Al0.23Ga0.77N distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) with reflectivity of 93% and a top dielectric SiO2 /HfO2 DBR with reflectivity of 97%. The 30-pair AlN/AlGaN DBR was grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition on a 2.8 μm-thick GaN buffer layer on a c-plane sapphire substrate. The bulk ZnO 3λ/2 thick cavity was grown on the AlN/AlGaN DBR by pulsed-laser deposition. Finally, the 9-period SiO2 /HfO2 dielectric DBR was deposited by dual electron-beam gun evaporation to complete the MC structure. The thickness non-uniformity in ZnO cavity and nitride-based DBR provides different exciton-photon detunings.

2.2 Experimental setup

All experiments were performed at RT. A frequency-tripled Nd:YVO4 355-nm pulse laser with a pulse duration of 0.5 ns and repetition rate of 1 kHz was used as the pumping source. The cavity quality factor Q( = λ/Δλ), based on the measurement of normal incident micro-photoluminescence (μ-PL) system with a pumping spot size of 3 μm focused by a 100x objective lens, was about 221, and the corresponding linewidth and cavity resonance were 15 meV and 3.237 eV, respectively [18]. Two different exciton-photon detunings of δ = −119 meV and δ = −45 meV were investigated in this study and the polariton dispersion curves were measured by the angle-resolved PL system. The laser spot size on the sample surface was about 60 μm in diameter. The emitted light was collected by a UV optical fiber with a 600 μm core mounted on a rotating stage with an angular resolution of 1°, and detected by a nitrogen cooled charge-coupled device attached to a monochromator (iHR 320, HORIBA scientific Inc.) with spectral resolution of about 0.2 nm.

3. Results and discussion

3.1 Dispersion relation of polariton lasing and photon lasing

We show in Fig. 1 the dispersion and momentum space distribution of the emission. Figures 1(a)~1(f) show two dimensional color maps of the RT PL intensity vs. energy and detection angle from the sample normal direction at different excitation powers. Figures 1(g)~1(h) show the integrated intensity of polariton and photon mode for both detunings. Dispersions of the lower polariton branch (LPB) are observed for both detunings at low pumping powers (Figs. 1(a) and 1(d)), which are parabolic-like at small angles and converges to the uncoupled exciton (X) energy at large angles. The small peak energy splitting of LPB observed at large angles (7 meV at 34 degree) in Fig. 1(a) is due to the TE/TM polarizations. The absence of the upper polariton branch (UPB) is expected as a result of the strong absorption in the scattering and continuum states of ZnO excitons [22] and the polariton thermalization especially in the system with a large normal mode splitting. According to the measured dispersion curves shown in Figs. 1, the estimated Rabi splitting is about 98 meV for large detuning region (δ = −119 meV) and 78 meV for small detuning region (δ = −45 meV) based on the numerical fitting of transfer matrix method. Table 1 shows the different oscillator strength values due to the homogeneous broadening at different pumping power which were considered in the fitting curves of Figs. 1.

Table 1. Oscillator strength values in Fig. 1

In the case of large detuning (δ = −119 meV), at low excitation power density (0.33Pth,L), a polariton relaxation bottleneck is also observed, as shown in Fig. 1(a). This is because the high photon fraction (88.6%) of lower polariton states resulting in a much shorter lifetime of LPB compared with excitons reduces the probability of hot polaritons to interact with phonons [23, 24]. The polariton relaxation bottleneck is suppressed with increasing pumping power density (0.78Pth,L), as shown in Fig. 1(b). The integrated polariton intensity follows a Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution, as shown in Fig. 1(g), at a fitted temperature of 324 K. When the pumping power density is larger than threshold (1.1Pth,L), polariton final state stimulation leads to rapid polariton condensation in the k// ~0 states, as shown in Fig. 1(c). A peak above the Maxwell Boltzmann distribution is clearly seen near k// ~0 [Fig. 1(g)].

In the case of small detuning (δ = −45meV), LPB is also observed at low pumping power density, and the relaxation bottleneck is suppressed due to a lower photon fraction (75%) and longer polariton lifetime [23, 24], as shown in Figs. 1(d) and 1(h). However, the higher energy density of states and shallow energy trap of LPB, especially at RT also results in higher threshold power density for polariton final state stimulation scattering, compared with the case of larger negative detuning [25]. Therefore, significant blueshift of the LP energy, accompanied by possibly a transition to the weak-coupling regime, is observed before reaching the threshold Pth,S. As shown in Fig. 1(e), at 0.83Pth,S a second emission peak appears and its energy corresponds to the photon mode, indicating the coexistence of pure photon mode and polariton mode emission and the transition from the strong coupling to weak coupling regime. This transition could be firstly induced at the central area of the Gaussian distributed pumping laser spot, and the lower polariton emission could originate from the peripheral area of pumping spot [26]. Above threshold, the photon mode dominates the emission and shows lasing behaviour near the ground state of the photon mode branch [Fig. 1(f)]. The corresponding photon distribution is shown in the k-space [Fig. 1(h)].

3.2 Power dependent characteristics of polariton lasing and photon lasing

The power-dependent emission intensity, linewidth, and emission energy of the polariton and photon lasers are summarized in Figs. 2 . For the polariton mode [Figs. 2(a)~2(c)], the lasing threshold power density is Pth,L ~31.8 kW/cm2, which is much lower than that of the ZnO vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) and other low-threshold ZnO nanostructures [20, 2729]. The corresponding threshold carrier density is N3D ~2.52 × 1017 cm−3, which is lower than the Mott density (3 × 1017 ~5 × 1017 cm−3) in the bulk ZnO at RT [30]. In general, the emission linewidth of a conventional laser diode under single mode operation decreases with increasing excitation power [31]. The linewidth of polariton mode, on the contrary, narrows at threshold, but then broadens with increasing pumping power, which could be due to the polariton number ñuctuations and self-interactions of polariton in k// ~0 states as the polariton occupancy in the ground state increases [32, 33]. This phenomenon is evident in Fig. 2(b). In addition, effects of polariton-polariton interaction [34] and oscillator strength saturation of excitons [25] cause a blue-shift of the emission peak energy at k// ~0 with increasing excitation power [Fig. 2(c)].

For the small detuning case [Figs. 2(d)~2(f)], emission from photon mode appears at >0.83Pth,S, as marked in the shaded area in Figs. 2(d)~2(f). Further increasing the pump power, photon lasing occurs at the power density of Pth,S ~318.2 kW/cm2, with the corresponding carrier density of N3D ~2.52 × 1018 cm−3. The threshold of the photon lasing is ten times higher than that of the polariton lasing observed in the case of large detuning. The linewidth of the photon mode narrows significantly at threshold, as shown in Fig. 2(e). Above threshold, the linewidth and the emission peak energy of the photon lasing mode changes negligibly with increasing excitation power, as shown in Figs. 2(e) and 2(f). The linewidth and blue-shift in Figs. 2(e) and 2(f) show a nonlinear tendency when photon mode occurs, indicating the transition from strong coupling to weak coupling regime (marked areas of Figs. 2(e) and 2(f)). This is because, in the weakly coupling regime, lasing takes place in the photon mode whose energy and linewidth are not affected by the exciton’s energy and linewidth. These behaviours are in sharp contrast to the polariton lasing and suggest again different origin of the two thresholds.

3.3 Polarization characteristics of polariton lasing and photon lasing

The polariton and photon lasings also feature different polarization properties. Figure 3(a) shows the measured optical polarization for 0.5Pth,L and 1.7Pth,L in the case of large detuning. The emission appears to be completely depolarized below and above the threshold. Since the active region is a bulk material, the exciton-exciton scattering should be spin-isotropic. Hence spontaneous polarization occurs with arbitrary polarization direction [10]. On the contrary, the degree of polarization up to 92% as shown in Fig. 3(d) is obtained for the case of small detuning (photon lasing case), indicating that the slight disorder in photonic structure would dominate the polarization characteristics of photon lasing mode. This is consistent with the observation that the energy peak and the lasing linewidth remain the same as the pumping power increases. In addition, the polarization of pumping laser has no relationship to the emission polarization since the pumping is non-resonant.

3.4 Spontaneous coherence buildup of polariton lasing

Finally, we measure the spatial distribution and spatial coherence of the polariton lasing. Figures 4(a) and 4(b) shows the real space image of LP gas at 0.9Pth,L and 1.1Pth,L respectively. Reduction of spatial distribution of LP emission results from the Gaussian profile of the pump spot and large nonlinearity at the threshold [7]. We then pass the spatial image of the LP emission through a Young’s double slit to study the spatial coherence [35]. A clear interference pattern appears above threshold, as shown in Figs. 4(c). From the fringe intensity distribution shown in Fig. 4(c), we calculate the first-order degree of coherence g(1)(r) to be about 0.85, at r = 1.5 μm. Compared to the GaAs system, where the coherent length is up to 20 μm at cryogenic temperature [36], our coherent length of polariton lasing in the ZnO MC is limited to 3 μm, which could be due to the larger in-plane spatial disorder or the room temperature operation since the dependence of de Broglie wavelength is inversely proportional to the square root of temperature.

4. Conclusion

In conclusion, we have demonstrated RT polariton lasing in a ZnO-based hybrid MC. Characteristics of the polariton lasing have been systematically measured and compared with a photon laser achieved in the same MC at different detunings. The polariton lasing requires a threshold power density (31.8 kW/cm2) one order of magnitude lower than that of the photon laser (318.2 kW/cm2). The threshold power density, linewidth broadening, blue-shift of emission peak energy and polarization reveal the fundamental difference between the two types of lasing. The demonstration of ZnO polariton lasing at room temperature promises a novel, ultra-low threshold coherent light source, and facilitates future fundamental research of room temperature quantum degenerate systems and their applications.
