- Quantum lasers: Half light, half matter – physics-math – 08 April 2009 – New Scientist
"…the polariton, or exciton polariton, to give it its full name. How can such a particle be light and matter simultaneously? As is so often the case, the secret lies in the weirdness of quantum physics… The gestation of polaritons is a complex process. It begins in a sandwich of semiconducting materials known as a quantum well…" POLARITONS – QUANTUM WELL – QUANTUM LASERS – LAZARZ!!1!!
