Efficient long-distance quantum teleportation is crucial for quantum communication and quantum networking schemes. Here we describe the high-fidelity teleportation of photons over a distance of 600 metres across the River Danube in Vienna, with the optimal efficiency that can be achieved using linear optics. Our result is a step towards the implementation of a quantum repeater, which will enable pure entanglement to be shared between distant parties in a public environment and eventually on a…

Long-distance teleportation based on a selected receiver in a quantum network
A new multi-hop scheme of single unitary transformation method (SUTM) is proposed for long-distance teleportation of an unknown W state in a quantum network that is superior to the hop-by-hop method owing to lower delays.
Quantum Teleportation of Shared Quantum Secret.
A novel teleportation protocol is proposed that enables one to perform the teleportation of quantum information shared by multiple parties without concentrating the information at any place, and is jointly performed by distributed participants, while none of them can fully access the information.

Superdense teleportation using hyperentangled photons
This work uses photon pairs hyperentangled in polarization and orbital angular momentum to implement superdense teleportation, which can communicate a specific class of single-photon ququarts and demonstrates that this set has an exponentially larger state space volume than the lower-dimensional general states with the same number of state parameters.

It is shown that during teleportation, one of a pair of entangled photons are subjected to a measurement such that the second photon of the entangled pair acquires the polarization of the initial photon.

This work presents a scheme of a quantum repeater that connects a string of (imperfect) entangled pairs of particles by using a novel nested purification protocol, thereby creating a single distant pair of high fidelity.
Long-distance teleportation of qubits at telecommunication wavelengths

Deterministic quantum teleportation of atomic qubits
Un unconditional teleportation of massive particle qubits using atomic (9Be+) ions confined in a segmented ion trap is reported, which achieves an average fidelity of 78 per cent, which exceeds the fidelity of any protocol that does not use entanglement.
Quantum teleportation of a polarization state with a complete bell state measurement.
The experimental results demonstrate the working principle of irreversibly teleporting an unknown arbitrary polarization state from one system to another distant system by disassembling into and then later reconstructing from purely classical information and nonclassical EPR correlations.
