Our paper on observation of motional narrowing, ballistic transport and trapping of room-temperature exciton polaritons in an atomically thin WS2 is published in Nature Communications. Congratulations to all, and especially to Matthias Wurdack, who drove this research!

The cover story by the ANU media explores the future potential of this research for low-energy electronics technologies.

Excitons in monolayer WS2 coupling to microcavity photons to form polaritons

Congratulations to Dr. Eliezer Estrecho on winning a highly competitive Discovery Early Career Award (DECRA) from the Australian Research Council! The DECRA Fellowship, commencing in 2022, will allow Dr. Estrecho to establish and lead a research program on exciton polaritons in complex artificial fields.

Congratulations to Dr.  Eliezer Estrecho and his collaborators on publishing the research on detecting collective oscillations of an exciton-polariton quantum fluid as Editor’s Suggestion in Physical Review Letters

Congratulations to Matthias Wurdack for winning the John Carver prize for the best student talk in the Research School of Physics! This annual competition had to run via Zoom this year, which made things even more challenging. Well done!

Congratulations to Dr. Maciej Pieczarka and his collaborators! His research on quantum depletion of an exciton-polariton condensate was published in Nature Communications today. The full text can be accessed here.

Congratulations to Maryam Boozarjmehr, who was awarded a Women & Leadership Australia (WLA) Early Career Scholarship to undertake the Leading Edge leadership training program!

Congratulations to Dr. Eli Estrecho, who was selected by the scientific review panel of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings to participate in the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting taking place from 30 June to 05 July 2019 in Lindau, Germany. Only the 600 most qualified young scientists worldwide are given the opportunity to enrich and share the unique atmosphere of these meetings.

Congratulations to Eli Estrecho and his collaborators on publication of their work on the single-shot regime of polariton condensation in Nature Communications. Access the full-text paper here.
