Summary:
Scientists have examined new developments in the dynamical behavior of quantum systems in a recent article in Science.

Dr. Ting Yu, an Associate Professor for the Schaefer School of Engineering & Science at Stevens Institute of Technology has co-authored a study in the journal Science examining new developments in the dynamical behavior of quantum systems.

Yu, who works in the department of Physics and Engineering Physics, writes about a new development in the dynamical behavior of entanglement of quantum systems.

"The surprising discovery that correlation between two quantum units of information called qubits can be degraded by environmental noise in a way not seen previously in studies of dissipation," writes Yu. "This new route for dissipation attacks quantum entanglement, the essential resource for quantum information as well as the central feature in the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen so-called paradox and in discussions of the fate of Schrφdinger's cat."

The article reviews recent progress in studies focused on this phenomenon, labeled ESD, which stands for early-stage disentanglement or, more frequently, entanglement sudden death.

As he has in the past, Yu paired up with Dr. Joseph H. Eberly, a member of the Center for Quantum Information and Director of the Rochester Theory Center for Optical Science and Engineering at the University of Rochester.

"Quantum information science is an emerging field that may bring about revolutionary technological advances in the 21st century. At Stevens we emphasize the importance of quantum information science," said Yu. "This is a very exciting research area and Stevens offers an environment where we can continue to advance our research."

3D Printed Instruments Make Sweet Music in Sweden

Reuters - Innovations Video Online (Oct. 23, 2014) — Students from Lund University's Malmo Academy of Music are believed to be the world's first band to all use 3D printed instruments. The guitar, bass guitar, keyboard and drums were built by Olaf Diegel, professor of product development, who says 3D printing allows musicians to design an instrument to their exact specifications.

Chameleon Camouflage to Give Tanks Cloaking Capabilities

Reuters - Innovations Video Online (Oct. 22, 2014) — Inspired by the way a chameleon changes its colour to disguise itself; scientists in Poland want to replace traditional camouflage paint with thousands of electrochromic plates that will continuously change colour to blend with its surroundings. The first PL-01 concept tank prototype will be tested within a few years, with scientists predicting that a similar technology could even be woven into the fabric of a soldiers' clothing making them virtually invisible to the naked eye.
