“A team of University of Queensland physicists has transmitted an atom from one location to another inside an electronic chip.

The team, which includes Dr Arkady Fedorov and Dr Matthias Baur from UQ’s ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems and the School of Mathematics and Physics, published its findings in Nature.

Dr Fedorov said the team had achieved quantum teleportation for the first time, which could lead to larger electronic networks and more functional electronic chips.

‘This is a process by which quantum information can be transmitted from one place to another without sending a physical carrier of information,’ Dr Fedorov said.

‘In this process the information just appears at the destination, almost like teleportation used in the famous science fiction series Star Trek.’”
