Researchers in Australia and Japan reported that they were able to transfer a complex set of quantum information while preserving its integrity. The information was sent in the form of light, and it was manipulated in such a way that it existed in two states at the same time. It was destroyed in one spot and recreated in another. The new breakthrough is a major step toward building safe, effective quantum computers. Previous attempts for teleportation were not successful, either because the transportation was very slow, or because information was lost.
This achievement opens wide the way for high-speed, high-fidelity transmission of information, according to Elanor Huntington, a professor at the University of New South Wales in Australia who was part of the study.
