Spontaneous formation and synchronization of vortex modes in optically induced traps for exciton-polariton condensates
We study the dynamics of exciton-polariton condensates in reconfigurable potentials created by an incoherent optical pump. The mode selection in the effective optically induced trap is shown to be determined by the largest growth rates of the linear eigenmodes of the effective complex potential created by the pump. We demonstrate that selection of higher order nonlinear modes with nonzero orbital angular momenta in such traps leads to formation of vortices in a single-component condensate and...[Show more]
