CMSP News & Views Seminar
/The News & Views Seminars are meant to address our section as a whole,
and therefore include an extensive pedagogical introduction to the
topic, and present the main physical ideas of the research in a way
understandable by everybody in the section. The goal is to bridge
distances among different subgroups of our diverse CMSP section. //The
diversity in our section makes it a unique place for crossing bridges
among different topics, and for cross-fertilization among seemingly
distant fields. /

One of the key challenges in the development of quantum technologies is
the control of light-matter interaction at the quantum level where
individual excitations matter.
During the past couple of decades, there has been tremendous progress in
controlling individual photons and other excitations such as spin,
excitonic, phononic in solid-state systems. Such efforts have been
motivated to develop quantum technologies such as quantum memories,
quantum transducers, quantum networks, and quantum sensing.
While these efforts have been mainly focused on control and manipulation
of individual excitations (i.e., single-particle physics), both desired
and undesired many-body effects have become important.
Therefore, it is intriguing to explore whether these quantum optical
control techniques could pave a radically new avenue to prepare,
manipulate, and detect non-local and correlated electronic states, such
as topological ones.
In this talk, I discuss several examples for such ideas, from
optically-enhanced and -induced superconductivity to cavity-QED
properties of quantum Hall states.
