Title:A driven-dissipative spin chain model based on exciton-polariton condensates

Abstract: An infinite chain of driven-dissipative condensate spins with uniform nearest-neighbor coherent coupling is solved analytically and investigated numerically. Above a critical occupation threshold the condensates undergo spontaneous spin bifurcation (becoming magnetized) forming a binary chain of spin-up or spin-down states. Minimization of the bifurcation threshold determines the magnetic order as a function of the coupling strength. This allows control of multiple magnetic orders via adiabatic (slow ramping of) pumping. In addition to ferromagnetic and anti-ferromagnetic ordered states we show the formation of a paired-spin ordered state $\left|\dots \uparrow \uparrow \downarrow \downarrow \dots \right. \rangle$ as a consequence of the phase degree of freedom between condensates.
