Summary

Given a single copy of an unknown quantum state, it is impossible in principle to identify it. The mostly inaccessible information carried by the state is termed quantum information. In contrast to classical information, it cannot be copied or cloned. This concept provides a theoretical underpinning for all aspects of quantum communication and quantum computation. Here we use it to consider quantum teleportation.
