We study the open system dynamics of a harmonic oscillator coupled with an artificially engineered reservoir.We single out the reservoir and system variables governing the passage between Lindblad-type andnon-Lindblad-type dynamics of the reduced system’s oscillator. We demonstrate the existence of conditions under which virtual exchanges of energy between system and reservoir take place. We propose to use a single trapped ion coupled to engineered reservoirs in order to simulate quantum Brownian motion.
