Abstract:

Superconductive quantum circuits comprise quantized energy levels that may be coupled via microwave electromagnetic fields. Described in this way, one may draw a close analogy to atoms with internal electronic levels coupled by laser light fields. In this Letter we present a superconductive analog to electromagnetically induced transparency that utilizes superconductive quantum circuit designs of present day experimental consideration. We discuss bow a superconductive analog to electromagnetically induced transparency can be used to establish macroscopic coherence in such systems and. thereby. be utilized as a sensitive probe of decoherence.
