Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place in cafes, bars and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context. In this framework, Prof. Carlos Tejedor gave a talk on “The magic of quantum mechanics: teleportation, but better than Star Trek”.
This is one of the themes of science fiction that soon came true. But the reality is different, instead of people, teleportation can only be done with information contained in microscopic states, albeit in a completely safe way. And all through the use of quantum mechanics whose possibilities may seem magic to a general audience.
