Abstract

We observed the antibound state, as well as the bound state, for cavity polariton pairs in a planar CuCl microcavity by spectrally resolved four-wave mixing. We obtained dispersion curves of the bound and antibound states by changing the incident angle of the pump pulses corresponding to the cavity detuning. The dispersion curve for the bound state suggests that the bound state is mainly composed of a bare biexciton and is weakly coupled to the cavity photons. The dephasing time of the bound state was faster than that of a bare biexciton in a thin sample, supporting the hypothesis that the bound state is coupled to the cavity photons. On the other hand, the antibound state consists of two lower polaritons having the same spin. The clear observation of the antibound state can be qualitatively explained by the phase-space filling, which reduces the Rabi splitting.
