The previously proposed visualization of Rabi oscillations of a single atom by a continuous fuzzy measurement of energy is specified for the case of a single transition between levels caused by a π-pulse of a driving field. An analysis in the framework of the restricted-pathintegral approach (which reduces effectively to a Schrödinger equation with a complex Hamiltonian) shows that the measurement gives a reliable information about the system evolution, but the probability of the transition… CONTINUE READING
