Houck Lab: First Resonator Arrays

Kagome latticeThe Houck Lab at Princeton has recently fabricated and characterized the first microwave resonator arrays.

The selected array geometry consists of 12 coplanar waveguide resonators, coupled by three-way capacitors to form a Kagome star. The successful reduction of disorder in resonator frequencies to as little as a few parts in 104 paves the way for large circuit QED lattices and the study of interacting polaritons — quasiparticles that combine photon degrees of freedom and quantum excitations of nonlinear superconducting circuits.
