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.

What is the time overhead for fault-tolerant gate teleportation?

The gate teleportation protocol (https://arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/9908010) has a step where it utilizes cat state measurement of transversal operators. Since cat states can not detect phase errors it is ...

Why does gate teleportation allow to implement nonlocal operations via local ones?

In (Gottesman and Chuang 1999), when discussing quantum gate teleportation, they mention how it can be used to implement nonlocal gates such as a CNOT, by only using (classically controlled) local ...

Why do we use the Bell state $|00\rangle+|11\rangle$ for quantum teleportation?

In the quantum teleportation protocol we use the Bell state given by $$\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \left( |00\rangle + |11\rangle\right). $$ My intuition tells me this works is because we can transform this ...
