Riassunto:  In the past few years, significant improvements have been achieved in quantum communication. To extend the communication range, however, a new technology based on quantum memories needs to be developed. In PNAS, Bao et al. (1) give an example of the building blocks of the quantum communication networks we may expect to see in the future. These complex systems will be built on the basic ingredients of quantum state teleportation and quantum memories and will expand over relatively large distances. Quantum teleportation (2), one of the most spectacular protocols realized so far in the framework of quantum information, is a mysterious way to transport the information associated with the state of a quantum system. Quantum states are very fragile; indeed, they are easily destroyed by a single measurement. Quantum mechanics tells us that we cannot extract the complete information about a quantum state by a single measurement. For this reason, quantum states cannot be copied and transmitted by performing a direct measurement and then using a classic communication channel. Nevertheless, by using the entanglement existing among different quantum systems, quantum teleportation allows one to transfer from one place to another the information encoded in particular degrees of freedom of the particle involved in the process, such as the spin of the particle or the polarization of a photon, without the need for any transport of the particle. Accordingly, it corresponds to the disembodied transport of a quantum state.
