In the past decade, there has been a significant progress in the study of non-linear polariton phenomena in semiconductor microcavities. One of the key features of non-linear systems is the emergence of solitons. The complexity and the inherently strong nonlinearity of the polariton system made it a perfect sandpit for observing solitonic effects in half-light half-matter environment. This review focuses on the theory and the latest experimental elucidating physics as well as potential applications of conservative and dissipative solitons in exciton–polariton systems.
