We discuss non-trivial effects which emerge when a single spin is embedded in various (normal and Josephson) junctions and discuss a new experimental technique to probe single spin dynamics. We show that current may be influenced by the presence of a single spin and the converse. New spin nutations in a Josephson junction are predicted. We discuss a new general exerimental technique to probe single spin dynamics via noise spectroscopyby carefully monitoring the current noise, important information can be extracted regarding a single spin motion.
