Using modern micro and nano-fabrication techniques combined with superconducting materials we realize quantum electronic circuits. We create, store, and manipulate individual microwave photons on-chip. The strong interaction of such photons with superconducting quantum two-level systems allows us to probe fundamental quantum effects such as the Lamb shift and also to develop components for applications in quantum information technology.
