Inspired by cavity quantum electrodynamics (CQED) experiments with atoms and superconducting circuits, mesoscopic QED is an emerging field, which couples mesoscopic conductors to microwave cavity photons. In this context, I will present two experiments on carbon nanotube quantum dot devices, which illustrate the interest of using microwaves resonators. The first part combines experiment and theory for a carbon nanotube quantum dot coupled to normal metal and superconducting contacts. Measuring the cavity transmission appears as instrumental in probing the dynamics of charge transfer between a discrete electronic level and fermionic continua. In a second part, I will discuss the first implementation of a Cooper pair splitter in cavity. The strong coupling regime is achieved, a premiere with quantum dot circuits. Together, these experiments support the idea, that mesoscopic quantum electrodynamics is a prolific toolbox in the context of both fields of quantum transport and quantum information science.
