Bose Einstein condensation in the solid state
A team of international collaborators, including EPFL's Laboratory of Quantum Optoelectronics, makes headlines with their research showing that half-matter, half-light quasi-particles called polaritons show compelling evidence of Bose-Einstein condensation in a solid at the relatively high temperature of 19 degrees Kelvin. Their article graces the cover and is featured in the September 28 issue of Nature magazine.

GaN Microcavity Laser: Polariton cavity lases at room temperature
Researchers at the University of Southampton and the Institute of Quantum Electronics and Photonics have reported room-temperature operation of a microcavity gallium nitride (GaN) polariton laser with an input-power threshold of only 1 mW, which, at an absorbed energy density of 29 mJ/cm2, is an order of magnitude lower than the best performance obtained to date with optically pumped GaN quantum-well vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers.
