Abstract:

Understanding the interaction between light and matter has enabled many of the breakthroughs in the modern era, including computers, lasers, and communications systems. Further advancing the understanding is crucial for the next wave of technology as well. Having the ability to tune the strength of the interaction at the few-excitation, quantum limit should help on this front. In this talk, we will discuss how such tunability is implemented with superconducting qubits, and the types of new experiments it opens up.
