Abstract : Circuit Quantum Electrodynamics (cQED) is a highly promising platform for quantum control, quantum simulation, and quantum optics in a solid-state environment. Such systems consist of arti cial atoms coupled to superconducting resonators, and can be probed with microwave signals on a chip. This thesis theoretically and experimentally studies a method of quantum-limited Josephson parametric ampli cation for the improvement of such microwave measurements. A theoretical analysis of parametric ampli cation with a nonlinear quantum oscillator is given, along with an analysis of a particular implementation with a superconducting coplanar waveguide resonator shunted by an array of SQUIDs. A parametric ampli er chip is designed and a fabrication process is engineered. Measurements and analysis of a successfully fabricated device are presented, and future outlook is discussed.
