When the environment of a one-dimensional resonant double barrier acts as a source of dephasing or dissipation we find that the resonant half-linewidth is larger than the decay rate of a quasi-bound state. This result shows that measuring the decay rate of a quasi-bound state does not necessarily yield the resonant half-linewidth.
