We work in what can broadly be described as experimental atomic, optical, and mesoscopic physics. We seek to engineer and explore new quantum systems with controlled connections for quantum information and quantum optics. In particular we focus on manipulating single and few ultracold neutral atoms and the quest to control mesoscopic mechanical oscillators in the quantum regime. Our experiments draw on, for example, low-loss optical interfaces, high-Q mechanical oscillators, and laser cooling and trapping techniques.
