Abstract

We review the practical conditions required to achieve a non-equilibrium BEC driven by quantum dynamics in a system comprising a microcavity field mode and a distribution of localised two-level systems driven to a step-like population inversion profile. A candidate system based on eight 3.8nm layers of In0.23Ga0.77As in GaAs shows promising characteristics with regard to the total dipole strength which can be coupled to the field mode.
