The Quantum Internet
Not only did scientists successfully transmit single-photon qubits over hundreds of miles for the first time ever, but they managed to do it for six input states, and ‘demonstrate that the quantum teleportation is universal.’
Physicists from China and Austria have conducted the first intercontinental teleportation of particles through the Mozi quantum communications satellite and made a conference call impossible to hack, the Chinese Academy of Sciences press service reported.
“One year after the launch of Mozi, we have succeeded in taking three main steps towards the `quantum Internet,” Chinese scientists said.
Physicists claimed to have transferred quantum keys from the satellite to Earth at a distance of 1,200 kilometers, connecting two different points on the surface of the planet at a similar distance, as well as carrying out the first orbital quantum teleportation experiments.
