Prof. Dr. Klaus Jöns (CRC member) together with an international team of researchers, has succeeded in realising so-called quantum teleportation with the help of "imperfect quantum dots". The results show that the strict requirements for ideal photon sources can be relaxed and suggest that such quantum dots will play an important role in future quantum communication applications. The study has now been published in Quantum Information, a journal in the Nature series.
