(ScienceMarketNews) Chinese and Austrian scientists have succeeded in teleporting 3D quantum states for the first time. High-dimensional teleportation might play an essential position in future quantum computer systems.
This is an essential step in the direction of a future quantum web, since high-dimensional quantum programs can transport larger quantities of data than qubits. The participating Chinese researchers additionally see alternatives in multidimensional quantum teleportation. In future work, the quantum physicists will deal with how one can prolong the newly gained information to allow teleportation of the whole quantum state of a single photon or atom.
