Event description: 


We will discuss recent developments at a new scientific interface between quantum optics, nanoscience and quantum information science. Specific examples include the use of quantum optical techniques for manipulation of individual atom-like impurities at a nanoscale and for realization of hybrid systems combining quantum emitters and nanophotonic devices. We will discuss how these techniques are used for realization of quantum nonlinear optics and quantum networks, as well as for new applications such as magnetic resonance imaging with single atom resolution and nanoscale sensing in biology and material science.
