First Teleportation Between Light and Matter

The goal was to transfer, or teleport, the quantum state of a second light beam onto the cloud.

To do so, the group mixed a second, weaker laser pulse with the strong laser and split the superimposed beams into two arms. A detector in one arm measured the sum of the beams’ amplitudes and a detector in the second arm measured the difference between their phases.

Not exactly Star Trek… yet… 🙂
