Abstract

We show that complete population inversion can be obtained in a micromaser even in the presence of large detuning. This spectacular effect is due to nonadiabatic transitions induced in the atomic system when the atom crosses the cavity. This effect is shown to depend strongly on the shape of the cavity mode and the axial atomic position.
