A brave new world of teleportation is one step closer and it could revolutionise how we use the internet.
A team of global quantum physicists have made a breakthrough, by teleporting more complex data than ever before.
The boffins responsible believe it could change how we use the internet by making it hack-proof.
Rather than using ordinary binary qubits data the team, from Austrian Academy of Sciences, the University of Vienna, and the University of Science and Technology of China, have utilised a “third” data option using quantum qutrits.
This means instead of the usual 0 and 1 qubit states programmers have become used to, a new and more complex information age may be on the horizon with qutrits offering 0, 1 and 2s.
Speaking to New Scientist, Ciarán Lee, of University College London said: “The higher the dimensions of your quantum system, the more secure you can ensure your communication is and the more information you can encode.
“But going from a qubit to a qutrit is especially difficult — the tricks you use for qubits have to do with a nice symmetry that qutrits don’t have.”
However this won’t be like the Star Trek teleporters just yet.
It is not a matter that has been transferred by researchers, but instead information about particles’ quantum state.
The implications however are no less exciting: a quantum powered hack-proof internet with instant transfer speeds.
