The spin is an intrinsic quantum property of subatomic particles like electrons, protons and neutrons. It is also the simplest physical example of a quantum bit, and the easiest to visualise. In this
episode of Quantum Computing Concepts, Professor Andrea Morello of UNSW Australia illustrates the basic properties of spins, and how their quantum state can be manipulated to encode quantum information.
