Quantum Leap: Bits of Light Teleported to Another Place

To teleport light, researchers led by Noriyuki Lee of the University of Tokyo had to destroy it in one place, and re-create it in another. This mirrors the teleportation process on "Star Trek," where transporters scan a person, atom by atom, and dismantle him, only to rebuild the person by configuring a different set of atoms in exactly the same pattern in another place.
Lee and his team accomplished this by linking a packet of light to one half of a pair of entangled particles. They then destroyed the light and the particle it was linked to, leaving only the lone particle of the entangled pair. The remaining particle retains the link with its entangled partner, though, including information about the light, which enabled the researchers to rebuild the light in the exact configuration at the other location.

Cheers for the article, it's interesting to see where quantum research is heading. Knowledge is expanding at a rapid rate indeed. I wonder what applications the teleportation of light could have - perhaps a new form of coded communication?

That was done ages ago by a group of australian (i think) scientists. It's still pretty cool though.

EDIT: Found it for you, it's from 2002, Australian teleport breakthrough
