Measurement of the Static Structure Factor in a Paraxial Fluid of Light Using Bragg-like Spectroscopy

Phys. Rev. Lett. 127, 023401 (2021)

We implement Bragg-like spectroscopy in a paraxial fluid of light by imprinting analogues of short Bragg pulses on the photon fluid using wavefront shaping with a spatial light modulator. We report a measurement of the static structure factor, S(k), and we find a quantitative agreement with the prediction of the Feynman relation revealing indirectly the presence of pair-correlated particles in the fluid. Finally, we improve the resolution over previous methods and obtain the dispersion relation including a linear phononic regime for weakly interacting photons and low sound velocity.

Taming the snake instabilities in a polariton superfluid

Optica 7, 1660--1665 (2020)

The dark solitons observed in a large variety of nonlinear media are unstable against the modulational (snake) instabilities and can break in vortex streets. This behavior has been investigated in nonlinear optical crystals and ultra-cold atomic gases. However, a deep characterization of this phenomenon is still missing. In a resonantly pumped two-dimensional polariton superfluid, we use an all-optical imprinting technique together with the bistability of the polariton system to create dark solitons in confined channels. Due to the snake instabilities, the solitons are unstable and break into arrays of vortex streets whose dynamical evolution is frozen by the pump-induced confining potential, allowing their direct observation in our system. A deep quantitative study shows that the vortex street period is proportional to the quantum fluid healing length, in agreement with the theoretical predictions. Finally, the full control achieved on the soliton patterns is exploited to give proof of principle of an efficient, ultra-fast, analog, all-optical maze solving machine in this photonic platform.

Dark-Soliton Molecules in an Exciton-Polariton Superfluid

Phys. Rev. X 10, 041028 (2020)

The general theory of dark solitons relies on repulsive interactions and, therefore, predicts the impossibility to form dark-soliton bound states. One important exception to this prediction is the observation of bound solitons in nonlocal nonlinear media. Here, we report that exciton-polariton superfluids can also sustain dark-soliton molecules, although the interactions are fully local. With a novel all-optical technique, we create two dark solitons that bind together to form an unconventional dark-soliton molecule. We demonstrate that the stability of this structure and the separation distance between two dark solitons is tightly connected to the driven-dissipative nature of the polariton fluid.

Stationary Quantum Vortex Street in a Driven-Dissipative Quantum Fluid of Light

Phys. Rev. Lett. 123, 215301 (2019)

We investigate the formation of a new class of density-phase defects in a resonantly driven 2D quantum fluid of light. The system bistability allows the formation of low-density regions containing density-phase singularities confined between high-density regions. We show that, in 1D channels, an odd (1 or 3) or even (2 or 4) number of dark solitons form parallel to the channel axis in order to accommodate the phase constraint induced by the pumps in the barriers. These soliton molecules are typically unstable and evolve toward stationary symmetric or antisymmetric arrays of vortex streets straightforwardly observable in cw experiments. The flexibility of this photonic platform allows implementing more complicated potentials such as mazelike channels, with the vortex streets connecting the entrances and thus solving the maze.
