    Could somebody help me... I've been reading books and websites. Some of them say photons have no spin and some of them say photons have spin 1. I only know that when a photon is generated from a relaxation of an excited electron, to conserve angular momentum the photon needs to have a spin 1.... Does that mean having 1 spin and no spin at all is equivalent? Is there a special reason why some people say it has no spin and others say it has spin 1
    Heeelp!
