Quantum Teleportation

Hello there,

I was searching for Quantum Teleportation.

and I have actually two questions

* What does the quantum state represents?

*And why in theory, they say it is possible to teleport even molecules which isn't achieved by experiment?

I'd be happy to know more about it.

The trouble with the word "teleportation" is that science fiction writers have hijacked it to mean something else than that quantum physicists mean by that. Quantum physicists are not making the claim that things can actually be "teleported" from point A to point B, much like what happens routinely in Star Trek movies. Instead, what's being "teleported" are quantum attributes. As a bad example, which I hope could be illustrative, let's say that I step into a quantum teleportation device that quantum physicists actually do have. I have a headache, and I feel thirsty, and I'm presently at point A. Meanwhile you are at point B, and you do not have a headache nor feel thirsty. Quantum physicists can "teleport" the attributes that I have, which is 1) having an headache, and 2) feeling thirsty, from point A to point B, so that I no longer have an headache nor feel thirsty, but YOU do. You have a headache and feel thirsty. This is what quantum physicists are able to do, as predicted by quantum theory.

I know this is a bad example, but it's a step. You first need to understand what exactly is a "quantum state", and why "attributes" are important to such things as quantum states. Michael Mendrin · 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Michael Mendrin After 2 weeks of researching , asking , making conclusions and deeping my understanding a little bit of quantum teleportation. I ended up making a video in order to participate in a competition called race2space.


Sorry for recorder quality , and my fluency in English is bad. but I think it's understanble. However, This is my third year learning English. I wanted to give an example just like you. Because you inspired me so much. Thanks a lot Michael :D . Omar Sehlouli · 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Michael Mendrin Thank you so much for your reply. You gave me a great example ( not bad as you say ). Omar Sehlouli · 6 months, 2 weeks ago
