Briegel}, journal={Physical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics}, year={2010}, volume={82 2 Pt 1}, pages={ 021921 } }

We demonstrate that entanglement can persistently recur in an oscillating two-spin molecule that is coupled to a hot and noisy environment, in which no static entanglement can survive. The system represents a nonequilibrium quantum system which, driven through the oscillatory motion, is prevented from reaching its (separable) thermal equilibrium state. Environmental noise, together with the driven motion, plays a constructive role by periodically resetting the system, even though it will…
