Scientists at the Niels Bohr Institute in Denmark have made a breakthrough in teleportation by successfully transmitting both light and matter over short distances in a split second.

Led by Professor Eugene Polzik of Copenhagen University, the experiment improves upon previous attempts at teleportation that could transmit either light or matter, but not both. Polzik and his team were also able to transmit their matter over half a meter, much longer than the previous record.
