Qbits get bigger.

Quantum teleportation so far has involved photons, but two different groups from Austria and Colorado have succeeded in teleporting atoms, so to speak. The quantum states of atoms were transfered In Colorado ( 9Be+) ions) and in Austria (40Ca+ ions).

They report 78% and 75% fidelity so far, and they’re setting it up so that the Qbits are addressable within the system. It isn’t time yet for “Beam me up, Scotty,” but it’s getting closer every day.
