"Teleportation" of single atoms

I've recently heard a lecture that dealt with semiconductors and using them to create pairs of entangled photons on-demand. As a side note the Professor noted that this might open a possibility of "teleportation" in the future, and that it's actually been done already in experiment for a single atom.

So teleportation of human beings aside, is it true that the state of a single atoms was successfully duplicated at a distance by means of entangled photons? Can someone provide more information on this experiment please?

Thanks,
Chen
