Welcome to Hosseini Lab

The central theme of our group research is the light-atom interaction and its role in quantum optical communication and sensing. Our research directions include 1) cooperative interaction of light with periodic arrays of ions in nano- or micro-photonic structures, 2) quantum light generation and storage using atoms in cryogenic solids or room-temperature atoms, 3) enhanced sensing and imaging using optomechanical, quantum optical, and atomic systems.


Our group is in the process of moving to Northwestern University.

Available Positions

We have Ph.D. and Postdoctoral positions for qualified applicants. Please reach out to Prof. Hosseini (mh(at) with your CV if interested.
