We develop a theory for the dynamics of an Andreev bound state (ABS) hosted by a weak link of finite length for which charging effects are important. We derive the linear response of both the current through the link and charge accumulated in it with respect to the phase and gate voltage biases. The resulting matrix encapsulates the spectroscopic properties of a weak link embedded in a microwave resonator. In the low-frequency limit, we obtain the response functions analytically using an… Expand

Circuit-QED with phase-biased Josephson weak links
By coupling a superconducting weak link to a microwave resonator, recent experiments probed the spectrum and achieved the quantum manipulation of Andreev states in various systems. However, theExpand
Josephson current through a superconducting quantum point contact shorter than the coherence length.
It is shown theoretically that the critical current of a smooth and impurity-free superconducting constriction increases stepwise as a function of its width. The step height at zero temperature isExpand

The sample-to-sample fluctuations in the critical current of a disordered Josephson junction are analyzed by means of a transmission-matrix formalism and the universal limit is reached in weak links formed from point contacts or microbridges. Expand
Resonant Josephson Current Through a Quantum Dot
We calculate the DC Josephson current through a semiconducting quantum dot which is weakly coupled by tunnel barriers to two superconducting reservoirs. A Breit-Wigner resonance in the conductanceExpand
Voltage staircase in a current-biased quantum-dot Josephson junction
We calculate the current-voltage (I-V) characteristic of a Josephson junction containing a resonant level in the weakly coupled regime (resonance width small compared to the superconducting gap). TheExpand
From Adiabatic to Dispersive Readout of Quantum Circuits.
A theory bridging these two limits is presented and illustrated, with several examples, its necessity for a general description of quantum circuits readout. Expand

Microwave Spectroscopy Reveals the Quantum Geometric Tensor of Topological Josephson Matter.
The oscillator strength of the absorption rates provides direct evidence of topological quantum properties of the Andreev states and it is demonstrated that the quantum geometric tensor of AndreeV states can be extracted by synthetically polarized microwaves. Expand
Observation of Vanishing Charge Dispersion of a Nearly Open Superconducting Island.
Improved qubit coherence times at the point of highest suppression is found, suggesting novel approaches for building charge-insensitive qubits. Expand
