First Quantum Teleportation in 3D
(ECNS.com) Chinese scientists have demonstrated the experiment of transferring quantum information in a 3D state for the first time. According to Pan Jianwei, coauthor of the study known as the “father of quantum” in China, quantum teleportation is a new communication method to transfer quantum information – a particle’s quantum state in the micro-world.
Limited in a two-level state for a long time, the study paves the way to teleporting the complete quantum state of a particle.
Quantum teleportation is able to transmit quantum state to the very far side without moving a physical particle.
Previously, all experiments of phenomenon demonstration were in a qubit, a two-level state. “Quantum communication can be applied widely in fields such as national defense, government affairs, finance and energy,” Pan said. “It is important for enhancing the country’s competitiveness and information security.”
