Assemblies of magnetic molecules with long coherence time are being investigated as quantum bits that may be embedded in superconducting resonators . Bringing the spin center into contact with the superconducting surface maximizes coupling to the resonator but may also reduce the spin's coherence time by increased scattering of quasi-particles. Here we report the capability to tune the exchange coupling of spin 1/2 vanadyl phthalocyanine molecules (VOPc) with a Pb superconducting surface. This system offers a fully tunable spin superconductor coupling from uncoupled spin to strongly coupled, screened spin . These findings highlight the possibility to scale superconducting resonator experiments down to single molecule sensitivity.
