Teleportation is Tested
Kinematical techniques used to understand the Higgs Boson particles generated in the Large Hadron Collider advance such that quantum teleportation is more commonplace.
For a look ahead, Thomson Reuters analysts consulted the Web of Science and Derwent World Patents Index to identify rapid progress and emergent trends in scientific research and technological innovation, gauging the advances most likely to affect health and the quality of life in the next decade.

Advances in high-energy physics, epitomized by the recent confirmation of the Higgs boson, will continue to deepen our knowledge of elementary and composite particles and their associated forces. As new frontiers of matter open up, concepts such as quantum teleportation will be further explored.
The frequent request heard on Star Trek® will not be such an abstract concept as we move through the 21st Century.
Since the 2013 success at the CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC), research related to the Higgs Boson particle has increased. In fact, papers on this topic have been the most prevalent in fundamental physics in 2014.
Measurement techniques developed to understand the particles generated in the LHC were ground breaking through the use of new kinematical techniques. Kinematics is a form of classic mechanics that studies the motion of points, objects and groups of objects regardless of the impetus for motion.
We are on the precipice of this field’s explosion; it is truly an emerging research front. Early indicators point to a rapid acceleration of research leading to the testing of quantum teleportation in 2025.
Although in 2025 we as humans won’t yet be able to teleport through space, a significant investment in and testing of quantum teleportation will be underway using other forms of matter.
In addition to reports on the Higgs boson, other aspects of particle physics have attracted wide attention in the literature, including a 2012 report cited over 400 times observing the electron-antineutrino disappearance at Daya Bay in China
Patent applications related to Higgs Boson cover protons pursuing the state of an elementary particle and aggregating the elementary particle with a high-energy photon, and, the energy of a material in a body accelerating at the speed of light and growing into the square of the speed of light
