Alexey Kavokin is a theoretical physicist who led several international research projects aimed at the realization of a new generation of lasers: polariton lasers. Capitalising on the achieved breakthrough he now pursues his research in the area of quantum polaritonics aimed at the realization of a new platform for quantum computing. His most cited work are on the optical spin Hall effect, spin Meissner effect, bosonic cascade lasers and exciton-mediated superconductivity.
