Not all Quantum Properties are Lost Through Interaction with the Environment
One of the most well-known “rules” of quantum physics is that all quantum properties are lost due to environmental interaction. This rule, though, may not hold true in all situations. “We have discovered the first counter to this common rule,” Sabrina Maniscalco tells PhysOrg.com. Maniscalco is a researcher at the Turku Centre for Quantum Physics, University of Turku in Finland. Along with fellow researcher (and husband) Jyrki Piilo, and Ph.D. student Laura Mazzola, Maniscalco has identified evidence that some quantum correlations can remain intact.
