We describe the physics of cavity polaritons in semiconductor micropillars. Cavity polaritons are exciton-photon entangled states arising from the strong coupling between excitons and the optical modes of a cavity. In micropillars, the photon three-dimensional confinement results in a discrete spectrum of 0D polariton states. Characterization of the linear properties of these micropillars will be presented. Then we will show how this system can be used to generate parametric photons and to obtain polariton lasing.
