What is quantum gate teleportation?

Quantum gate teleportation is the act of being able to apply a quantum gate on the unknown state while it is being teleported. This is one of the ways in which measurement-based computation can be ...

Does entanglement allow enhanced communication efficiency?

First, about teleportation, you say that you think quantum communication takes place in the protocol, but it doesn't. They only share an EPR pair they created together, hence the coordination and ...

How is quantum teleportation generalized to qudits?

Let's define the shift and clock matrices (the generalisation of the Pauli X and Z matrices) as $$ X=\sum_{i=0}^{d-1}|i+1\text{ mod }d\rangle\langle i|\qquad Z=\sum_{i=0}^{d-1}\omega^i|i\rangle\langle ...

Why is super-dense coding called the inverse of quantum teleportation?

In quantum teleportation, one starts with an entangled state shared between two parties, and (after some messing at the sender's side), two classical bits are transmitted from one party to the other ...

What is quantum gate teleportation?

Gate teleportation is in principle a method that allows the creation of different gates from an available set of gates, by teleporting qubits through entangled states. An example of the use of this ...

Trying to build a circuit for quantum teleportation on IBMQ I get ERROR_RUNNING_JOB error

The issue is that you are applying operations after measurement gates and this is currently not available on the real hardware. I think the hardware also does not support reset operations mid-way ...

Using a fractional number of classical bits within quantum teleportation

I don't know for sure how you would achieve fewer than two bits of classical communication for a teleportation, but here's one way that you could have a non-integer number: if you teleport a qudit ...

Quantum teleportation: second classical bit for removing entanglement?

Your initial calculations are correct. When Alice performs her first measurement and gets a 0 outcome then, as you say, Alice and Bob are left sharing a two-qubit state $$ |\Psi\rangle=\alpha|00\...

When you act on a multi-qubit system with a 2-qubit gate, what happens to the third qubit?

Whenever you have a quantum gate (like a CNOT) acting on some qubits but not others, it is assumed that the other qubits are acted on with the identity operator. This is done using the "Left Kronecker ...

What happens to the Bell state qubits after the Quantum Teleportation?

They get measured as part of the teleportation. It doesn't matter what happens to them after that. You can throw them away, reset them back to $|0\rangle$ and re-use them for something else, whatever.

Is it possible to have Quantum Teleportation Protocol without using classical channel?

This "protocol" is completely wrong. The author is simply preparing the state $|\psi\rangle$ on Bob's side and leaving it there untouched. Meanwhile, Alice prepares a maximally entangled ...

how to prove quantum teleportation can't be achieved by sending only one classical bit

Alice sent 1 bit to Bob. But that bit contained 1 qubit (via too good teleportation). But that qubit contained 2 bits (via superdense coding). But those 2 bits contained 2 qubits (too good ...

Compute the output of the quantum teleportation circuit

Since your circuit is teleportation, $|C\rangle =|\varphi\rangle$ and since you measured $|11\rangle$ on $|AB\rangle$ the answer is $|ABC\rangle = |11\rangle|\varphi\rangle$. Now, let look why this ...

Why can’t I use quantum teleportation to transmit data FTL 1/4 of the time?
