Stunning breakthrough: Researchers successfully teleport data between quantum computer chips without electrical or physical connection

Quantum entanglement

Move could lead to a more secure ‘quantum internet’, researchers claim

Experts from the University of Bristol and the Technical University of Denmark were able to ‘instantly send data’ using a process called ‘quantum entanglement’.  The information was exchanged without electrical or physical contact as the process allows these particles to instantly communicate over large distances. Their breakthrough involved creating specially designed and programmable circuits within a chip that are able to generate light particles.

Computer chips are advancing to the point where data is being transferred in particles of light suspended in space, opening up a door to advancements that will absolutely revolutionize every aspect of how we do business, transfer information and interact with our machines.

This is useful in quantum computing and networks as changing one particle will automatically change the other, say researchers from Bristol.The team say their study could lead to a quantum internet that ‘would ultimately protect the world’s information from malicious attacks’.

In quantum entanglement two particles become entwined together. They are so interconnected that they can continue to ‘communicate’ over long distances. Changing the properties of one particle causes the other to instantly change as well.

Their breakthrough involved creating specially designed and programmable circuits within a chip that are able to generate light particles. The particles are then able to use quantum entanglement to ‘teleport’ between different chips and maintain instant communication. The team had a 91 percent success rate when getting the particles to talk to each other through the specially programmed computer chips.

‘We were able to demonstrate a high-quality entanglement link across two chips in the lab,’ says Dan Llewellyn, co-author of the study.

This new research is important as quantum computers, internet and other technologies rely on ‘quantum information’,’ he said. ‘This is encoded in single particles that are difficult to control and measure’.

Dr Llewellyn and the team have been able to create devices that can generate and manipulate single particles of light within programmable circuits. The chips they created encode quantum information in light generated inside the circuits, they then process the information with high efficiency.

HOW DOES QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT WORK?

In quantum entanglement two particles become entwined together.

They are so interconnected that they can continue to ‘communicate’ over long distances.

Changing the properties of one particle causes the other to instantly change as well.

This can happen regardless of the distance separating the two particles – effectively ‘teleporting’ the shared information.

There is no hypothetical limit to the distance between the two particles.

 With quantum teleportation, information seems to travel instantaneously, meaning it is potentially moving faster than light.
