stimulated scattering

[′stim·yə‚lād·əd ′skad·ə·riŋ]
(optics)
The amplification, by stimulated emission, of intense radiation from a pulsed laser that has been inelastically scattered; results in exponential growth of the scattered power and, in some cases, almost complete scattering of the incident light.

From the initial observation of strong coupling between photons and excitons in such microcavities, the physics of polaritons has developed very quickly demonstrating such fascinating effects as stimulated scattering and Bose-condensation of polariton; room-temperature polariton lasing, superfluidity, bistability and multistability, soliton formation and many others.
