New record for Quantum teleportation over fiber

NIST team breaks distance record for quantum teleportation. Why is this significant?

Until now, so much quantum data was lost in fiber that transmission rates and distances were low. The new NTT/NIST teleportation technique could be used to make devices called quantum repeaters that could resend data periodically in order to extend network reach, perhaps enough to eventually build a “quantum internet.”

Previously, researchers thought quantum repeaters might need to rely on atoms or other matter, instead of light, a difficult engineering challenge that would also slow down transmission.

And here’s a pretty cool graphic that describes what they did:
