We will discuss recent developments at a new scientific interface between quantum optics, nanoscience and quantum information science. Examples include the use of quantum optical techniques for manipulation of individual atom-like impurities at a nanoscale and for realization of hybrid systems combining atoms and atom-like systems with novel photonic devices. We will discuss how these techniques are used for probing non-equilibrium quantum dynamics in disordered many-body systems with long-range interactions, exploring quantum nonlinear optics, scaling up quantum networks and realizing new probes for condensed matter and biological systems.
