“This is the first time teleportation has been achieved between the ‘flying’ medium of light and the ‘stationary medium’ of atoms,” said Eugene Polzik of Copenhagen. “Such teleportation could serve as a main building block of a quantum network connecting distant quantum processors.”taken from: http://www.physicsweb.org/articles/news/10/10/6/1“In free space [teleportation] could be over tens or hundreds of metres,” said Polzik. “We want to do long distance teleportation of a macroscopic object.”
Anybody want to translate this into plain english? What did they do? And what are they expecting to do?
