Questions tagged [teleportation]

Quantum teleportation is a process by which quantum information (e.g. the exact state of an atom or photon) can be transmitted (exactly, in principle) from one location to another, with the help of classical communication and previously shared quantum entanglement between the sending and receiving location.

Quantum teleportation: second classical bit for removing entanglement?

I have read about how Alice can send Bob a qubit $\alpha |0\rangle + \beta|1\rangle$ if they share an EPR pair. This gives an initial state: $(\alpha |0\rangle + \beta|1\rangle) \otimes (\frac{1}{\...

Generalization for $n$ quantum teleportations

In Breaking Down the Quantum Swap, it is stated: Thanks to the CNOT, we can implement a xor-swap on a quantum computer. All we need to do is chain three CNOTs back and forth. In a comment to a ...

Using a fractional number of classical bits within quantum teleportation

Recently, I heard that there can be transfer of rational classical bits (for example 1.5 cbits) from one party to another via quantum teleportation. In the Standard Teleportation Protocol, 2 classical ...
