Nonclassical light and collapse-revival dynamics are consequences of dynamical quantum interference in transient photon-atom interaction. We study the time evolution of atom and photons in a high quality cavity for time-dependent atom-field coupling, with different initial field states and initial atomic states. The inversion for initial superposed atomic state seems to be independent of initial classical fields but can be stimulated by the Schrodinger cat field. Interesting effects of the transient coupling are found through analysis of the collapse-revival in population inversion and the features in the Wigner function. Oscillatory coupling coefficient can prolong the occurrence of collapse, in analogy to the Zeno effect. The intensity atom-field coupling duration is an important parameter for controlling atomic inversion and producing frozen nonclassical light in the cavity after the atom-field coupling ceases.
