When an excitonic material is placed inside a resonant optical cavity, the quantum-coherent interaction with light can give rise to formation of composite light-matter excitations known as polaritons. Although polaritonic systems have been studied for many years in the context of optics, recent advances show that such coupled system offer exciting opportunities to affect the properties of the material itself. I this talk I will discuss some of our recent results under this topic, focusing on transport phenomena and how they can be controlled by coupling the material to photonic structures.
