Nonlinear quantum science with superconducting circuit quantum-electrodynamics (2009–2011)

A new field of physics called circuit QED has emerged over the last few years, with applications to precision measurement, nanomechanical transducers and quantum control. Superconducting artificial atoms are fabricated inside microwave resonators. We will study the nonlinear quantum physics of such systems. We will develop new experimental systems, supported by a strong theory program, to engineer controllable ultra-large nonlinear microwave susceptibilities and characterise dissipation due to glassy two-level systems in such devices.
