At the heart of quantum mechanics lies the fact that a measurement causes back-action on the system itself.

A prominent example is the quantum Zeno effect. Observing a system continuously with a large measurement strength freezes the system's dynamics. In this talk I will briefly review the concept of continuous measurements and the quantum Zeno effect. I present how to implement the quantum Zeno effect in the transverse-field Ising chain and discuss possible implementations in circuit quantum electrodynamics.
