2 Problems with Teleportation The uncertainty principle forbids simultaneous measurements of non-commuting observables. Consider trying to measure a simple system like the polarization state of a single photon: Trying to measure and simply collapses the state, giving only 1 bit of information!

3 Problems with Teleportation Only by performing repeated measurements on copies of the same state can and be determined with any accuracy. This method cannot be applied to teleportation of unknown states because the no-cloning theorem 1 forbids copying quantum states. 1 1 W.K. Wootters and W.H. Zurek, Nature 299, 802 (1982).

4 Quantum Entanglement Two particles are said to be entangled if measurements on one particle are correlated with measurements on the other particle. For example, the following singlet state is entangled: or Notice that measuring particle 1 puts particle 2 into a definite state:

5 The BBCJPW Protocol In 1993, a method of teleporting a two-state quantum system was published by six co-authors, collectively known as BBCJPW 2. Suppose Alice and Bob have already shared an entangled state: Alice wants to give Bob the state 2 2 C. H. Bennett, G. Brassard, C. Crepeau, R. Jozsa, A. Pere and W. K. Wootters, Phys. Rev. Lett. 70, 1895 (1993).

6 BBCJPW Protocol Alice then measures particles 2 and 3 using the following basis:

7 BBCJPW Protocol Alice then measures particles 2 and 3 using the following basis:

8 BBCJPW Protocol Alice needs to tell Bob the result of her measurement (2 classical bits), which limits teleportation to light speed. No energy or matter is transferred. The no-cloning theorem is not violated because the state | 3 i has been destroyed.

9 Boschi Teleportation Experiment In 1998, a team led by D. Boschi demonstrated 3 quantum teleportation of polarization states of photons. Key differences from the BBCJPW protocol: Path entanglement was used. A total of 2 photons were used- the state to be teleported is imprinted on Alices EPR photons polarization state. 3 3 D. Boschi, et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 80, 1121 (1998).

17 Alice measures photon #1 in this basis: Half-wave plate in path b 1 rotates polarization by 90º:

18 Alice measures photon #1 in this basis: Half-wave plate in path b 1 rotates polarization by 90º: (+) (-)

19 Alice measures photon #1 in this basis: Half-wave plate in path b 1 rotates polarization by 90º: (+) (-)

23 (+) (-) If Bob is told which of Alices detectors clicked, he can use R B to rotate his photons polarization into an exact copy of Alices polarization state. How do we verify that teleportation was successful?

24 (+) (-) How do we verify that teleportation was successful? Bob sets R B so it sends the teleported state to D B to measure a coincidence rate called

25 (+) (-) How do we verify that teleportation was successful? Bob sets R B so it sends the teleported state to D B to measure a coincidence rate called Bob sets R B so it sends the teleported state away from D B to measure a coincidence rate called

26 (+) (-) How do we verify that teleportation was successful? Bob sets R B so it sends the teleported state to D B to measure a coincidence rate called Result: S = ± The classical limit on S (without using entanglement) is Thus, these results break the classical limit by 8 standard deviations. Bob sets R B so it sends the teleported state away from D B to measure a coincidence rate called

27 Conclusion Experiments have demonstrated teleportation of polarization, atomic energy levels and squeezed states of light. Cant claim that a single photon has been teleported in its entirety because weve ignored the photons spatial states, frequency and k-vector. Scaling up teleportation to handle macroscopic objects presents enormous challenges. In the near term, quantum teleportation is useful for linking quantum computers and providing truly secure communication.
