Let H=-δ+V be a nonnegative Schrödinger operator on L2(RN), where N≥3 and V is a radially symmetric nonpositive function in RN decaying quadratically at the space infinity. For any 1≤p≤q≤∞, we denote by {norm of matrix}e-tH{norm of matrix}q,p the operator norm of the Schrödinger heat semigroup e-tH from Lp(RN) to Lq(RN). In this paper, under suitable conditions on V, we give the exact and optimal decay rates of {norm of matrix}e-tH{norm of matrix}q,p as t→∞ for all 1≤p≤q≤∞. The decay rates of {norm of matrix}e-tH{norm of matrix}q,p depend on whether the operator H is subcritical or critical and on the behavior of the positive harmonic function for the operator H.
