Generalized teleportation and entanglement recycling

transport-580x411Working in the exotic-sounding field of quantum teleportation, physicists are trying to make it easier to transmit quantum information in the form of qubits from one location to another without having the qubits actually travel through the intervening space. One challenge in quantum teleportation protocols lies in producing the enormous amount of entanglement required to send each qubit, a requirement that makes teleportation impractical for real applications. To overcome this problem, the scientists have proposed the idea of entanglement recycling, where the entanglement needed to send a qubit can be reused to send other qubits, greatly reducing the amount of entanglement required….
