Strong Coupling Cavity QED and Superconducting Qubits


Recent experimental breakthroughs have led to the construction of artificial superconducting "atoms": nanoscale objects containing approximately one billion aluminum atoms coherently acting in concert. When placed inside a resonant cavity, these "atoms" can strongly interact with single microwave photons. This talk will give an elementary introduction to recent remarkable experiments in the Schoelkopf and Devoret labs at Yale. In addition to being a new test bed for quantum mechanics and quantum optics, this system has many promising features for quantum computation.
