Strong coupling between light and electronic excitations mixes the constituent eigenstates into hybrid polaritonic quasiparticles. Under certain conditions it is possible to predict the formation of a polariton condensate with macroscopic occupation number and spontaneous coherence in the ground state. This condensate is a source of coherent matter waves and photons.
In this work we theoretically investigate the possibility of achieving polariton condensation in an extended sheet of 2D semiconductor coupled to a novel dielectric nanocavity with deep subwavelength confinement and featuring a spectrally isolated mode. Such coupling leads to the formation of a spatially localized polariton state, which interacts with the continuum of excitons through Coulomb interaction. The system is modelled by a Born-Markov master equation for the polariton subsystem, where the exciton continuum is traced out. This enables the derivation of a rate equation model to describe the dynamics of the lower polariton population.
