Quantum teleportation of optical images with frequency conversion


A new version of quantum teleportation of optical images in continuous variables is considered. The new scheme is based on quantum entanglement in continuous variables between light fields of different frequencies and allows wavelength conversion between input and teleported images. The protocol of quantum teleportation with frequency conversion can be used as a combined part of light/matter interface in quantum parallel data processing and in a parallel quantum memory.
