Abstract

A coherently driven exciton–biexciton transition in CuCl enables one to propagate a probe light beam within the exciton-polariton stop-band where radiation is otherwise completely reflected. The stop-band transparency window can be controlled via the pump beam frequency and intensity. The phenomenon is reminiscent of quantum coherence effects occurring in three-level atomic systems, except that it here involves delocalized electronic excitations in a crystal via a frequency and wave-vector selective polaritonic mechanism. Both a free standing slab and a microcavity configuration are theoretically studied.
