Quantum Fluids of Light


Professor Cristiano Ciuti

The laboratory for Quantum Materials and Phenomena, University Paris Diderot - Paris 7, France

In this talk, I will review recent theoretical and experimental advances in  the manybody physics of light [1], including superfluid-like optical propagation effects.
I will also give an overview of the recent frontier concerning non-equilibrium strongly correlated phases of light, which can be achieved in arrays of coupled nonlinear resonators (e.g., semiconductor photonic microcavities, superconducting nonlinear quantum resonators).
