Recent advancements in nanotechnology showed that nano-structuring of materials can be used to create so-called optical metamaterials with remarkable linear and nonlinear optical properties that cannot be found in nature. Most importantly for active optical manipulations, it was shown that their nonlinear coefficients can be comparable or  larger than those of commonly used nonlinear optical materials. In addition, their functionality was shown to be superior to that of conventional nonlinear materials. We study how to enhance the nonlinear light matter interaction in classical and compound metamaterials in order to make them viable for the generation and control of quantum states of light. The practical goal of this research is to develop  a new enabling technology, based on integrated nonlinear metamaterials, for photonic data processing and quantum computation on chip.
