Optical signatures of a fully dark exciton condensate

Abstract : We propose optical means to reveal the presence of a dark exciton condensate that does not yield any photoluminescence at all. We show that i) the dark exciton density can be obtained from the blueshift of the excitonic absorption line induced by dark excitons; ii) the polarization of the dark condensate can be obtained from the blueshift dependence on the probe photon polarization as well as from the Faraday effect. All these effects result from carrier exchanges between dark and bright states. Copyright (C) EPLA, 2014
