Scientists at the University of Bristol and the Technical University
Scientists at the University of Bristol and the Technical University of Denmark have found a way to transfer data between computer chips through quantum entanglement without using any physical connection. This is the first time anyone has used quantum teleportation successfully, to transfer data between computers. This discovery opens new possibilities on quantum computing and quantum internet they say. The scientists could teleport data from one chip to another at remarkable speeds. So if this technology is used on the internet, the opportunities are unimaginable.
Scientists could achieve this through the “Quantum entanglement” theories. Quantum entanglement is a label for the observed physical phenomenon that occurs when a pair or group of particles is generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in a way such that the quantum state of each particle of the pair or group cannot be described independently of the state of the others, even when the particles are separated by a large distance.
So theoretically this means that there’s no limit for the distance. By changing the properties of one particle, the properties of other particles can be changed accordingly regardless of the distance between them. The team used a pair of such photons in both chips and changed the properties of one chip. These changes were reflected in the partner photon accordingly.
This type of teleportation do not move any matter. Only information is transferred as quantum bits or the basic of quantum information.
