Transporters are teleportation machines. The devices convert a person or object into an energy pattern (a process called dematerialization), then "beam" it to a target, where it is reconverted into matter (rematerialization).

Notes of Interest

The term transporter accident is a catch-all term for when a person using a transporter is somehow not rematerialized correctly.
