Mikhail Lukin - Exploring new frontiers of quantum optical science

Prof Mikhail Lukin, Harvard University


We will discuss  recent developments  involving a new scientific interface between quantum optics, many body physics, nanoscience and quantum information science. Specific examples include the use of quantum optical techniques for manipulation of individual spins and photons using ultra-cold atoms and atom-like impurities in diamond as well as  control of light-matter interactions using sub-wavelength localization of optical fields. Novel applications of these techniques ranging from novel approaches to quantum computation at room temperature to strongly interacting photonic systems and nanoscale sensing will be discussed.
