We study Archimedean atomic lattice effect algebras whose set of sharp elements is a complete lattice. We show properties of centers, compatibility centers and central atoms of such lattice effect algebras. Moreover, we prove that if such effect algebra E is separable and modular then there exists a faithful state on E. Further, if an atomic lattice effect algebra is densely embeddable into a complete lattice effect algebra ^E and the compatiblity center of E is not a Boolean algebra then there exists an (o)-continuous subadditive state on E.

Key words: effect algebra; state; sharp element; center; compatibility center.
