Challenge Team Abstract
Quantum physics, although initually thought to be a fanciful representation of scientific concepts with little basis in fact, has been valideated and its theories affirmed through the research and analysis of the logical foundations of its principles. Modern interpretations of the quantum theory have led scientific theorists to begin to accept the feasibility of ideas formerly thought to reside only in the realm of science fiction, such as "teleportation". In attempting this project, our group is undertaking the investigation and simulation of the concepts involving "Quantum teleportation".
The purpose of this project is to simulate the translation of an object from one point in space-time to another without any intermediary trafvel of the object between the two points (teleportation) using fundamental quantum physics concepts. This will be accomplished through the utilization of a program written in the widley accepted object oriented programming language, C++. In theory, the completed program will sucessfully take inputted characteristics of an object to be transmitted (characteristics of each quark in the object, such as the "spin" of each quark) and utilize equations with simulated "tools" (real-life science appliances) to take those characteristics and apply them to another block of matter (say, "air"), and apply the characteristics of the second block of matter to the first; in essence, it will simulate the "switching" of the two blocks of matter in space-time. Due to the massive amount of quarks in standard objects, the program will initually simulate the transfer of ab oboject of a very small size (one or two atoms). Hopefully, though, the results of this experiment will blaze the trail for more involved and ocmplex investigation and simulation into quantum teleportation that may lead to the achievement of actual teleportaion.
