Previous Clermont projects

Clermont

CLERMONT project (1999 - 2002) included 8 partners (LASMEA (Clermont-Ferrand), Montpellier, CRHEA (Nice), Southampton, Sheffield, Florence, Rome, Linkoping. In the focus of its research were semiconductor microcavities in the strong coupling regime. The main achievements include the demonstration of stimulated polariton-polariton scattering (Baumberg-Savvidis, 2000) and demonstration of the strong coupling in GaN-based microcavities (Semond-Leymarie, 2003).

Clermont 2

This network project involved LASMEA (Clermont-Ferrand), Montpellier, Ecole Normale Superieur (Paris), LPN (CNRS-Marcoussis), Sheffield, Southampton, Florence, Rome, Madrid, CRHEA (CNRS-Nice)

It has been focussed on the polariton lasers and Bose-Einstein condensation. A room temperature polariton lasing in a GaN based microcavity has been demonstrated in Southampton in 2007.

Clermont 3

Sadly, this proposal was not funded.

Clermont-Ferrand

The name of the project, Clermont, comes from Clermont-Ferrand, the city where the project was initially started (it later moved away following its main coordinator).
