The emerging field of quantum engineering seeks to design and construct quantum devices for use in technological applications. To do so, one must learn to prepare a physical system in a well defined quantum state, drive it though a specified evolution, and access its final state through measurement. Historically, some of the most successful laboratory platforms with which to explore these challenges have originated in the field of quantum optics. This work reviews some of the recent advances in single- and many atom quantum control at the College of Optical Science, and their integration into a novel atom-light quantum interface.
