Full detail of a proposed experiment required for implementing and verifying a theoretical scheme for four-partite splitting and open-destination teleportation of an arbitrary two-qubit photonic state is discussed. In this proposed experiment the quantum channel is provided by a pair of decomposable generalized (G) Bell states, which offer the experimental advantage that they can be very easily generated in photonic experiments. Our experiment is based on generating a two-qubit photonic state by ultrafast spontaneous parametric downconversion in nonlinear crystal and relies on Bell-state measurements, which in this experiment are performed by an optical Bell-state analyzer that can unambiguously determine all four Bell states. In this proposed experiment unitary transformation required at the destination station is implemented using a quantum control NOT gate. We finally show that in our four-partite optical system the two-qubit photonic state originally prepared at a sending station can be experimentally split and subsequently regenerated at any one of the three distinct receiving stations.
