Field quantization effects in cavity electrodynamics can be isolated by sending through the cavity those atoms prepared initially in semiclassical dressed states. Under such initial conditions the fully quantized theory predicts irregular evolution, whereas the semiclassical and neoclassical theories predict, respectively, no dynamical evolution and regular periodic evolution.
