Using superconducting parametric cavities, we have demonstrated much of the toolbox of linear quantum optics, but also extended it by taking advantage of the strong nonlinearities of superconducting circuits. In a set of experiments, we have used these parametric cavities as a platform for analog quantum simulation of lattice field theories. Preliminary results already show the promise of the platform for this application. For instance, a single device can simulate a number of different models, including topological and chiral models, in a flexible and programmable way.
