First-Ever Long Distance Quantum Teleportation Achieved, Media Says

One of the researchers concerned within the research mentioned that the outcomes they’ve achieved might be additional improved with “system upgrades” they now anticipate to finish in 2021.

A joint crew of researchers from Fermilab, AT&T, Caltech, Harvard University, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and University of Calgary has for the primary time managed to achieve a sustained teleportation of qubits of photons over a distance of 44 km of fibre, with SciTechDaily describing this achievement as a “significant step in the direction of realising a quantum internet.”

According to the media outlet, the qubits had been efficiently teleported in two methods, the Caltech Quantum Network (CQNET) and the Fermilab Quantum Network (FQNET),

Maria Spiropulu, Shang-Yi Ch’en professor of physics at Caltech and director of the IN-Q-NET analysis programme, additionally added that the crew is “very proud to have achieved this milestone on sustainable, high-performing, and scalable quantum teleportation systems,” and that “the results will be further improved with system upgrades” that they “are expecting to complete by Q2 2021.”
