We study a flux qubit in a coplanar waveguide resonator by measuring transmission through the system. In our system with the flux qubit decoupled galvanically from the resonator, the intermediate coupling regime is achieved. In this regime, dispersive readout is possible with weak back action on the qubit. The detailed theoretical analysis and simulations give good agreement with the experimental data and allow us to make the qubit characterization.
