The coherent coupling of single atoms with photons in high-Q cavities has led to the demonstration of fundamental quantum effects in light-matter interaction processes and to the generation of micromasers and microlasers emitting radiation with non-classical properties. It has made possible the development of single photon light sources and efficient detectors of single atoms as well as the implementation of quantum information and communication procedures in which atoms and photons play the roles of quantum bits.

Mesoscopic superpositions of field states have been generated by entangling single atoms to fields made of many photons and the decoherence of these states has been studied, shedding new light on the quantum to classical boundary. Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics has also led recently to the quantum non-demolition counting of photons in a cavity, opening new perspectives for studying non-classical states of radiation.

These atomic physics experiments are now extended - with promising applications in perspective - to the study of solid-state devices with microcavities built on substrates and coupled to artificial atoms such as quantum dots or superconducting junctions.

PAGE 1. To approach this goal, we will explore the effect of materials and fabrication processes on coherence properties of superconducting circuits and develop techniques to control and read-out superconducting qubits with high fidelity. With its conclusion this project will have explored the interaction of a controlled number of photons with a controlled number of atoms on a fundamental level. We will have demonstrated the potential of our solid-state based circuit QED approach for quantum information processing by realizing a quantum algorithm.
The project will also contribute to establish a leading research team in Switzerland while fostering international collaborations and educating and promoting students and young scientist at all levels.
The results of the project will have an impact on quantum information science in general but are also relevant for applications such as microwave single photon sources, detectors and solid-state instrumentation. Toggle navigation. Project Members.
