Chinese Scientists RealizE Long-Range Quantum Teleportation in Free Space

  • update:2010-06-11

        The USTC-Tsinghua joint team has successfully realized 16-kilometer long-range quantum teleportation, the longest in the world at present and over 20 times the previous world record. This result demonstrated for the first time the feasibility of long-range quantum teleportation in free space, thereby accomplishing a major step toward the eventual realization of a global quantum communication network. The June 1st issue of Nature Photonics reported this study in its cover story "Experimental free-space quantum teleportation"? [Nature Photonics 4, 376-381 (2010)].

        The work by Chinese scientists on quantum teleportation in free space has attracted close attention from the academic community of the world. Many academic media, including "New Scientist" and "Physics Today", have reported the developments. The website of the American Physical Society "" lost no time in publishing the article "Quantum teleportation through open air" immediately after the publication of a related paper on quantum teleportation by Chinese researchers. In addition, PhysOrg carried a report entitled "Quantum teleportation achieved over 16 km".
