Although the quantum nature of light has been discovered over a century ago, controlling its quantum states still presents a considerable challenge. The past decade has shown significant progress in solving it. We are learning to produce and measure arbitrary quantum optical states, save them in memory cells and even bring them into interaction with each other. Mastering these abilities is paramount for many applications of quantum information technology.
