  Exciton polaritons are part-light, part-matter strongly interacting Bosonic quasiparticles by dressing excitonic resonances with microcavity photons. They have extremely light effective mass and strong nonlinearity, which have shown tremendous potential in quantum fluid of light (i.e., Bose-Einstein condensate of polaritons), ultrafast polaritonic switching and topological polaritonics. Over the past several decades, this field has been largely fuelled by high quality II-VI (e.g., CdTe) or III-V (e.g., GaAs) quantum wells operating at only cryogenic temperatures constrained by the small exciton binding energy. Some organic materials show promising operation at room temperature, nonetheless they usually suffer from large threshold density and weak nonlinearity. Here in this talk, I will introduce our recent progress in realizing exciton polariton condensate and lasing in a few halide perovskite semiconductors. Then I will show that we can further optically manipulate the condensate by introducing 1D artificial polariton lattices with a large forbidden bandgap opening up to 13 meV. This work further opens a diverse possibility of 2D polariton lattices and network towards quantum simulator and topological lasing. Finally, I will show some perspective work in electrically pumped polariton lasing and topological polaritons at room temperature.
