In general most of our research can be described as quantum state engineering. One of the unique features of quantum optical systems is the extremely good experimental control over the systems, down to the level of controlling individual atoms and ions. In our research we develop theories for how one can use this extremely good experimental control to realize interesting physical effects. In particular we have developed theories for how one can realize quantum computers and for interesting effects, which can be realized with ultra cold atoms.
