    © 2001 Optical Soc. Of America. We study the motion of ultra-cold atoms in an accelerating optical lattice. We find that the tunneling dynamics are strongly affected by repeated measurement during the non-exponential time, leading to either inhibition (zeno) or enhancement (anti-zeno) of decay.
