Abstract : The control of quantum states of light is a necessary step for quantum information transportation and processing. Cold atomic memories are one of the prime candidates for storing and manipulating photonic states. This thesis is a study of optical non-linear effects created using Rydberg states. Rydberg states are highly excited states (n>30) of atoms, which are useful in realizing photon-photon interactions because of their long distance (>10µm) dipole-dipole interactions. We utilize a low finesse cavity to transform phase shifts into intensity correlations which would allow one to generate arbitrary non-classical states of light
