Observations of the oscillatory exchange of excitation between N two-state atoms and a single mode of a high-finesse optical cavity are reported in a regime of weak-field excitation and of comparable atomic and cavity damping rates. The observed frequencies of oscillation, approximately given by g√N, where g is the single-photon Rabi frequency, are in reasonable agreement with theoretical predictions.
