Beam me up, Scotty. Scientists have recently announced that they have achieved complex quantum teleportation. Multidimensional teleportation could have a strong impact on quantum computing and communication. Researchers from the Austrian Academy of Sciences, University of Vienna, and University of Science and Technology of China successfully teleported a three-dimensional quantum state. They were able to teleport the quantum state of a photon or light particle to another. Scientists have theorized that this kind of transportation is possible since the 1990s, but have not been able to prove it. Teleportation does not transport matter, but instead moves quantum information. The scientists were... Read more...
