Microwave Photonics on a Chip: Superconducting Circuits as Artificial Atoms for Quantum Information Processing

Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 911)


Superconducting circuits using Josephson junctions, behaving as nonlinear inductors, can act as artificial atoms displaying macroscopic quantum coherence. Therefore, atomic physics and quantum optics experiments on a chip can be performed using these artificial atoms. This chapter presents a brief overview of this exciting and fast-growing field. We discuss the analogies with atomic physics and quantum optics occurring in natural atoms, and also describe the differences with natural atoms. We also summarize some current trends in this interdisciplinary field of microwave photonics. These circuits provide an unprecedented level of control over quantum states, and this can be useful for future quantum information processors.
