Anders Sørensen (Quantop, NBI): Quantum Teleportation -- Why? 

The name teleportation catches the attention of both the scientific community as well as the general public. There is little doubt that the much of this attention is motivated by the teleportation of human beings in various movies and TV-shows. Although one could imagine the teleportation protocol being used in this context, this is actually not the main motivation behind the efforts to realize teleportation. In general teleportation plays a very important role in the field of quantum information, which try to exploit the counter intuitive and often paradoxical effects of quantum mechanics for practical applications. I will try to explain what the teleportation is, and why we are trying to realize it.
