    A quantum hybrid system is any architecture in which a coupling between two quantum systems of different physical nature is produced. This unlocks the ability to observe one system via the other , and to examine the interaction itself. These hybrid systems will provide a "toolbox " for quantum information processing; utilising the advantages of one hybrid system to compensate for the limitations of another. Two distinct classes of quantum hybrid system are investigated; an electromechanical transducer , studying the interaction of microwave photons and mechanical phonons, and quantum electrodynamic systems involving the interaction of microwave photons and ensembles of electron spins
