Welcome to the Lukin Group at Harvard University. Our group’s research focuses on both the theoretical and experimental studies in quantum optics, atomic physics, and quantum information science. The emphasis is on studies of quantum systems consisting of strongly interacting photons, atoms, molecules and electrons. We are developing new techniques for controlling the quantum dynamics of such systems, and studying fundamental physical phenomena associated with them.

These techniques are used to explore new physics, as well as to facilitate implementation of unique applications in fields ranging from optics, condensed matter physics, and information science to sensing, metrology, imaging, and life science. In the course of this work, we are also exploring the emerging interfaces between quantum optics, condensed matter physics and nanoscience.
