Riassunto:  We develop a quantum model for nonequilibrium Bose-Einstein condensation of photons and polaritons in planar microcavity devices. The model builds on laser theory and includes the spatial dynamics of the cavity field, a saturation mechanism, and some frequency dependence of the gain: quantum Langevin equations are written for a cavity field coupled to a continuous distribution of externally pumped two-level emitters with a well-defined frequency. As an example of application, the method is used to study the linearized quantum fluctuations around a steady-state condensed state. In the good-cavity regime, an effective equation for the cavity field only is proposed in terms of a stochastic Gross-Pitaevskii equation. Perspectives in view of a full quantum simulation of the nonequilibrium condensation process are finally sketched.
