Superconducting quantum circuits are an emerging quantum computing platform which now competes aggressively with the best trapped-ion systems. In a collaboration with the Schuster Lab, we are using the exquisite quantum coherence of these devices to build synthetic materials composed of strongly interacting microwave photons.
