California researchers said Thursday they had completed the first "full" teleportation experiment.

                  They said they had teleported a beam of light across a
laboratory bench.
                  They did not physically transport the beam itself, but
transmitted its properties to another beam, creating a replica of the first beam.
                  "We claim this is the first bona fide teleportation,"
Jeff Kimble, a physics professor at the California Institute of Technology, said in a telephone interview.
