Quantum Teleportation Across a Metropolitan Fibre Network

by Christopher Chamberland Research Brief Quantum Information Science 21.02.2017

Quantum teleportation allows quantum states to be, in principle, teleported over arbitrarily long distances and has several applications in communication and cryptographic protocols. This work provided the first demonstration of quantum teleportation spanning several kilometers using telecommunication-wavelength photons.
