Competing role of interactions in synchronization of exciton-polariton condensates.

Saeed Khan, Hakan E. Türeci

We present a theoretical study of synchronization dynamics in incoherently pumped exciton-polariton condensates in coupled polariton traps. Our analysis is based on a coupled-mode theory for the generalized Gross-Pitaevskii equation, which employs an expansion in non-Hermitian, pump-dependent modes appropriate for the pumped geometry. We find that polariton-polariton and reservoir-polariton interactions play competing roles and lead to qualitatively different synchronized phases of the coupled polariton modes as pumping power is increased. Crucially, these interactions can also act against each other to hinder synchronization. We map out a phase diagram and discuss the general characteristics of these phases using a generalized Adler equation.
