Physics - Colloquium

Spin quantum bits (qubits) encode information in the quantum state of a single or few electrons confined to a small spatial dimension. The weak coupling of the spin to its environment makes such qubits a promising platform for quantum information processing. While the solid environment is ultimately responsible for the loss of coherence of such qubits, it simultaneously provides unique possibilities for manipulating and controlling their quantum state on sub nanosecond time scales.  In this talk I shall review the recent developments in this field and discuss some promising applications in metrology with unprecedented sensitivities and spatial resolution.
