Stimulated parametric scattering of excitonic polaritons in planar semiconductor microcavities (MC) was investigated. It was shown that in an MC with a small depth of the polariton mode, the simulated scattering threshold grows with rising the temperature. It was suggested that the stimulated parametric scattering may be due to the noncoherent processes of polariton scattering on phonons, hot excitons, and free carriers. The lowering of the stimulated parametric scattering threshold with increasing the temperature can be accounted for by the fact that polariton-photon and polariton-electron collisions result in the enhanced population of the polariton states at the bottom of the LPB.
