Experiments in quantum optics have long been implemented with atoms in 3D free space or with atoms interacting with cavities. Over the past decade, the field of microwave quantum optics using superconducting circuits has gained a tremendous amount of attention. In particular, the confinement of photonic modes to 1D enables a new parameter regime of strong interactions between qubits and open waveguides. In these setups, known as waveguide quantum electrodynamics (WQED), superconducting qubits interact with a continuum of propagating photonic modes. In this thesis, we will explore the physics of WQED devices that consist of multiple qubits and their potential application to quantum information and simulation.
