The interaction of light with matter lies at the heart of quantum technologies: the high selectivity of laser light allows for precise control of the quantum state of atoms. This principle underlies the use of rare-earth-ion-doped crystals, in which atomic impurities benefit from structures that ensure the protection of their quantum properties. These materials are currently experiencing remarkable growth with numerous applications such as high-speed information processing, quantum memories and converters, and metrology.
