Teleportation Experiments Continue - Record-Breaking Distance of 143 Kilometers Achieved!

28/06/2013 06:24 - An international research team including several scientists from the University of Waterloo has achieved quantum teleportation over a record-breaking distance of 143 kilometres through free space.

The experiment saw the successful teleportation of quantum information — in this case, the states of light particles, or photons — between the Canary Islands of La Palma and Tenerife.

The breakthrough is a crucial step toward quantum communications via satellite. [Read more] ...
