Quantum Teleportation Between Distant Matter Qubits
January 22, 2009
A research team from the Joint Quantum Institute and the University of Maryland physics department report teleportation of quantum information between atomic quantum memories over long distances. A quantum bit stored in a single trapped Yb+ atom is teleported to a second Yb+ atom about 1 meter away, with an average fidelity of 90 percent.
