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 has recently moved to Northwestern University.
