We demonstrate, at room temperature, the strong coupling of the fundamental and non-uniform magnetostatic modes of an yttrium iron garnet ferrimagnetic sphere to the electromagnetic modes of a co-axial cavity.

We report the experimental observation of charge pumping in which a precessing ferromagnet pumps a charge current, demonstrating direct conversion of magnons into high-frequency currents via the relativistic spin–orbit interaction. The generated electric current, unlike spin currents generated by spin-pumping, can be directly detected without the need of any additional spin– charge conversion mechanism.

We observe the real-time breaking of single Cooper pairs by monitoring the radio-frequency impedance of a superconducting double quantum dot. In addition, we measure in real time the quasiparticle recombination into Cooper pairs. Analysis of the recombination rates shows that, in contrast to bulk films, a multistage recombination pathway is followed.
