We investigate in depth the relation between the first detection time of an isolated quantum system that is repeatedly perturbed by strong local measurements with a large fixed frequency $1/\tau$, determining whether it is in some given state $| \psi_\text{d} \rangle$, and the time of absorption to the same state of the same system with the added imaginary potential $2i\hbar | \psi_\text{d} \rangle \langle \psi_\text{d} | / \tau$. As opposed to previous works, we compare directly the solutions…

We consider a quantum walk where a detector repeatedly probes the system with fixed rate $1/\tau$ until the walker is detected. This is a quantum version of the first-passage problem. We focus on the…

Quantization of the mean decay time for non-Hermitian quantum systems

- Physics

We show that the mean time, which a quantum particle needs to escape from a system to the environment, is quantized and independent from most dynamical details of the system. In particular, we…
