Paper Abstract

Recent demonstrations of teleportation have transferred quantum information encoded into either polarization or fieldquadrature degrees of freedom (DOFs), but an outstanding question is how to simultaneously teleport quantum information encoded into multiple DOFs. We describe how the transverse-spatial, spectral and polarization states of a single photon can be simultaneously teleported using a pair of multimode, polarization-entangled photons derived from spontaneous parametric down-conversion. Furthermore, when the initial photon pair is maximally entangled in the spatial, spectral, and polarization DOFs then the photon's full quantum state can be reliably teleported using a Bell-state measurement based on sum-frequency generation.
