We have performed microwave reflection experiments on a charge-phase qubit coupled to an LC oscillator. We find that the system behaves like an artificial molecule showing vibronic sideband transitions. The reflected signal is determined by a combination of the Franck-Condon principle and resolved-sideband cooling or heating of the oscillator.
