Time Magazine has named research on the "quantum teleportation" of information from one atom to another in its "50 Best Inventions of 2009" feature. The research was performed at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI), a collaborative venture between the University of Maryland and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and at the University of Michigan. The work is mentioned in the Nov. 23 issue of Time Magazine, which originally profiled it in its Jan. 29 issue, based on a Jan. 22 University of Maryland news release. The work originally was reported in the Jan. 23, 2009, issue of the journal Science, and was led by JQI physicist Christopher Monroe, who is based at the University of Maryland Department of Physics and formerly worked at NIST's Boulder Laboratories.
