(InterestingEngineering) A team from Yokohama National University has teleported quantum information securely into a diamond, one of the hardest structures on the planet. The breakthrough could help us better share and store sensitive information.
quantum teleportation is a process in which quantum information can be transmitted from one location to another, with the help of classical communication and previously shared quantum entanglement between the sending and receiving location.
Quantum teleportation does not truly involve in the sci-fi sense “teleportation”. Quantum teleportation involves taking information from one place and recreating it in another because of quantum entanglement.
“Our ultimate goal is to realize scalable quantum repeaters for long-haul quantum communications and distributed quantum computers for large-scale quantum computation and metrology,” said Hideo Kosaka, a professor of engineering at Yokohama National University and an author on the study.
