Semiconductor microcavities provide a favourable system for the formation of high density phases at elevated temperatures in an all solid state environment. The physics of the high density polariton phase in such structures will be described. Particular phenomena which will be covered will include the formation of long temporal and spatial coherence, behaviour in one and two dimensional periodic potentials, and the formation of vortex and soliton excitations. Where appropriate, analogies will be given with phenomena in atomic condensates.
