Miniaturization of quantum technologies have led to the marriage of atomic physics and nanomaterial science. Some of the resulting new areas of research are hybrid quantum devices, single-molecule spectroscopies, table-top intense field generators, etc. I will present an area of research that I dub "Surface-enhanced quantum control" that is an exciting way of controlling light and nanomatter. By combining the electromagnetic enhancement properties of nanomaterials with the modification of the atomic properties, we can achieve an unprecedented level of control over quantum dynamics. I will present an example of surface-enhanced state purification.
