Our aim is to advance the theory and understanding of the quantum phyiscs of light-matter interactions, both for the study of fundamental phenomena and as a novel resource for the emerging field of quantum technology. While light-matter interactions at the single-emitter level (e.g. single atom) have been studied extensively achieving a great deal of control, much less is known about many-emitter, collective quantum optical responses, relevant to a variety of physical systems. The latter, collective phenomena and their underlying dipole-dipole interactions, are at the focus of our studies, and may entail many possibilities in quantum optical science and technology.
