Intersubband cavity polaritons in a quantum well waveguide structure are optically generated within less than one cycle of light by a 12-femtosecond near-infrared pulse. Mid-infrared probe transients trace the nonadiabatic switch-on of ultrastrong light-matter coupling and the conversion of bare photons into cavity polaritons directly in the time domain.

Abstract

Intersubband cavity polaritons in a quantum well waveguide structure are optically generated within less than one cycle of light by a 12-femtosecond near-infrared pulse. Mid-infrared probe transients trace the nonadiabatic switch-on of ultrastrong light-matter coupling and the conversion of bare photons into cavity polaritons directly in the time domain. Future perspectives of room-temperature subcycle control of ultrastrong electron-photon interaction are discussed.
