The nonlinear transient effects, similar to self-induced transparency and adiabatic following, are studied for a moving two-level atom that is entering into an ideal microwave cavity in a coherent superposition of its states. The atom undergoes a one-photon transition in the cavity, sustaining a spatial field distribution for a single-mode coherent (or thermal or Fock state) field. For some particular choice of parameters of atomic coherence, removal of an appreciable amount of field energy from the cavity could be observed.
