A team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Northwestern University (NU) is developing a system for long-distance, high-fidelity qubit teleportation. Such a system will be required if future quantum computers are to be linked together into a quantum Internet. This paper presents recent progress that the MIT/NU team has made, beginning with a review of the teleportation architecture and its loss-limited performance analysis.
