Welcome to the quantum Nano-photonics group at Purdue. Our research focuses on hybrid, scalable, and integrated photonic quantum technologies. In particular, we are interested in theoretical and experimental investigations of interacting and correlated open quantum optical systems. We engineer light-matter interactions and employ highly excited Rydberg states to create large optical nonlinearity, which leads to exotic states of light required for many different quantum technologies based on photons. More information about our research can be found here


We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic graduate students and undergraduates to join our lab.  If you are interested in quantum science, atomic physics, and photonics and would like to work towards the upcoming quantum technological revolution, email halaeian@purdue.edu.
