QuoteHow are scientists using jellyfish to create super-advanced polariton lasers? And how do lasers even work in the first place?

Quote"We demonstrate room temperature polariton condensates of cavity polaritons in simple laminated microcavities filled with biologically produced enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP). The unique molecular structure of eGFP prevents exciton annihilation even at high excitation densities, thus facilitating polariton condensation under conventional nanosecond pumping."
