Plenary Session IV
08:30 Plenary talk : New Interface Between Quantum Optics and Nanoscience
Mikhail D. Lukin
Harvard University (USA) We'll discuss recent developments at a new scientific interface between quantum optics and nanoscience. 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'll discuss how these techniques are used for realization of quantum nonlinear optics and quantum networks, and for new applications like magnetic resonance imaging with single atom resolution, nanoscale sensing in biology and material science.
09:10 Plenary talk : Spin-photon quantum interface

(1)ETH Zurich (Switzerland) , (2)NTU (Singapore) An important class of solid-state systems, such as quantum dots and nitrogen-vacancy centers, exhibit spin-state dependent optical transitions that allow for all-optical fast initialization, manipulation and measurement of spins. More importantly, the presence of quantum correlations between a scattered photon and the final spin-state in these emitters enables the realization of quantum information protocols such as heralded probabilistic teleportation and entanglement swapping. We will review recent progress in this field and discuss future prospects.
