We review various aspects of our recent work on dipolar excitons in double quantum well systems. We describe and analyse different possible avenues for obtaining high density and cold dipolar exciton fluids that may enable an observation of quantum phase transitions in excitonic systems. These avenues include free dipolar exciton fluids, dipolar exciton fluids in electrostatic traps and in excitonic rings. We present our experimental and modelling work on the exciton dynamics in such systems, and discuss our current view of the advances made and the challenges that remain in this fast evolving and promising field of research.
