Mirza Few-photon quantum optics with cavities, emitters and waveguides Quantum optics studies how light interacts with matter at the quantum level. The field has witnessed tremendous activity in the past two to three decades due to promising applications in quantum computation and quantum information processing. In this talk, I will discuss how architectures based on emitters, optical cavities and waveguides are used to observe and utilize quantum optical effects. I will focus on three examples of my work: (1) two-photon interference in coupled cavity arrays,(2) mechanical effects of single photons in hybrid atom-cavity optomechanics and (3) entanglement generation and control in waveguide quantum electrodynamics. 4138 Physics Research Building Institute for Optical Science spectroscopy@osu.edu America/New_York public
