Measurements of our first microwave resonators:

a) Optical microscope image of one of the on-chip resonators we fabricated. b) A sample of the spectral response, which is a signature of a resonance. c) The change in the quality factor of a resonator as a function of the number of photons in it hints at the internal mechanisms of quantum decoherence.
