A synchronization of atomic quantum transitions with natural Raman oscillations by ultrashort light pulses has been considered. This phenomenon may be observed if a perturbation pulse duration is smaller than the period of oscillations on the forbidden atomic transition. An accuracy of direct measurements of quantum transition times for trapped particles may be of the order of the ratio of two-photon transition frequency to the homogeneous width.
