Abstract: In this work, we present a theoretical study of a quantum dot-microcavity system which includes a constant magnetic field in the growth direction of the micropillar. First, we study the zero temperature case by means of a selfconsistent procedure with a trial function composed by a coherent photon field and a BCS function for the electron-hole pairs. The dependence of the ground-state energy on the magnetic field and the number of polaritons is found. We show that the magnetic field can be used as a control p…
