Quantum interference effects in rings provide suitable means to control spins at the mesoscopic scale. In this chapter we present the theory underlying spin-induced modulations of unpolarized currents in quantum rings subject to the Rashba spin-orbit interaction. We discuss explicitly the connection between the conductance modulations and the geometric phase acquired by the spin during transport, as well as pathways to directly control them.
