Spontaneous emission by a "two-level atom" interacting with a highly
excited field mode is described using quantum electrodynamics without
time-dependent perturbation theory. It is found that both the line shape
and the Lamb shift are affected by the "applied field." Detailed solutions
are presented as a function of the population of the "applied-field mode"
and as a function of the detuning.
