Cavity Magnonics is an emerging field studying the light-matter interactions involving cavity photons and magnons [1]. Via the quantum physics of spin-photon entanglement on the one hand, and classical electrodynamic coupling on the other, magnon-photon coupling connects some of the most exciting modern physics, such as quantum information and quantum optics, with one of the oldest science on the earth, the magnetism [2].

 This presentation outlines our most recent advancement in this field through the creation of a critically-driven cavity magnonics platform [3], which has enabled strong coupling [4] over a long distance mediated by traveling-photons — a capability unattainable previously. Notably, the experiment revealed striking anomalies: the coupling strength oscillated at double the period observed in conventional photon-mediated coupling, and exhibited distinct mode splitting within the cavity’s linewidth. These findings challenge existing coupled-mode theories, and the experimental result shows the potential of exploiting critical phenomena to build magnonics network over large distances, which could pave a way for developing quantum internet.
