Abstract
The properties of traps for exciton polaritons in a semiconductor optical microcavity with an embedded quantum well were considered. The two-component Bose condensate of photons and excitons was described by a coupled system of equations similar to the Gross-Pitaevskii equations, and analytical solutions in the Thomas-Fermi approximation were obtained for traps with weak exciton confinement. For strong confinement, condensate behavior was investigated numerically, and spatial profiles of coupled condensates of excitons and photons (which appear to be different in general case) were determined.
