Research in the field of relativistic quantum information aims at finding ways to process information using quantum systems taking into account the relativistic nature of spacetime. Cutting edge experiments in quantum information are already reaching regimes where relativistic effects can no longer be neglected. Ultimately, we would like to be able to exploit relativistic effects to improve quantum information tasks. In this talk, we propose the use of moving cavities for relativistic quantum information processing. Using these systems, we will show that non-uniform motion can change entanglement affecting quantum information protocols such as teleportation between moving parties. Via the equivalence principle, our results also provide a model of entanglement generation by gravitational effects.
