In quantum computing, teleportation refers to the method of moving a quantum state from one location to another without having to move any physical particles. This process is usually accompanied by entanglement between the sending and receiving locations. Teleportation of a quantum state uses the phenomenon of quantum entanglement (our next topic) as a means of transmission. When two or more particles are entangled, their quantum states are interdependent, no matter how far apart they are. In effect, they act as a single quantum object.
