Detailed schemes are investigated for experimental verification of Quantum Zeno effect with a superconduct- ing qubit. A superconducting qubit is affected by a dephasing noise whose spectrum is 1/f, and so the decay process of a superconducting qubit shows a naturally non-exponential behavior due to an infinite correlation time of 1/f noise. Since projective measurements can easily influence the decay dynamics having such non- exponential feature, a superconducting qubit is a promising system to observe Quantum Zeno effect. We have studied how a sequence of projective measurements can change the dephasing process and also we have sug- gested experimental ways to observe Quantum Zeno effect with a superconducting qubit. It would be possible to demonstrate our prediction in the current technology.
