Abstract

We investigate the quantum Zeno and anti-Zeno effects on pairwise entanglement dynamics of a collective of noninteracting qubits which have been initially prepared in a Werner state and are off-resonantly coupled to a common and non-Markovian environment. We obtain the analytical expression of the concurrence in the absence and presence of the nonselective measurements. In particular, we express our results in the strong and weak coupling regimes and examine the role of the system size and the effect of the detuning from the cavity field frequency on the temporal behavior of the pairwise entanglement. We show that the detuning parameter has a positive role in protection of entanglement in the absence of the measurement for the weak coupling regime. We find that for the values of detuning parameter less than the cavity damping rate, the quantum Zeno effect is always dominant, while for values greater than the cavity damping rate, both Zeno and anti-Zeno effects can occur, depending on the measurement intervals. We also find that the anti-Zeno effect can occur in the pairwise entanglement dynamics in the absence and presence of the detuning in the strong coupling regime.
