Combining photonic and electronic heterostructures within a single device provides a new opportunity to engineer the dispersion of the optically-coupled electronic excitations. As such, the ultra-nonlinear response which arises from the 'parametric' scattering of pairs of polaritons which possesses a strong and unusual dependence on the spin of the polaritons was shown. Results have shown significant implications for nonlinear devices based on parametric scattering.
