Paper Abstract

Recent studies suggest that both the quantum Zeno (increase of the natural lifetime of an unstable quantum state by repeated measurements) and anti-Zeno (decrease of the natural lifetime) effects can be made manifest in the same system by simply changing the dissipative decay rate associated with the environment. Here, we present a model which incorporates the effect of the environment in an exact manner leading to a confirmation of this expectation.
