Abstract

The physics of ultra-low power conservative and dissipative polariton solitons in GaAs photonic structures is reviewed. Polariton solitons form on a short length scale of 10's of micrometers and can be manipulated within few picoseconds. The effect of spin-dependent polariton nonlinearity on soliton formation is also discussed.
