We propose a variation of the Jaynes-Cummings Model (JCM), which consists of a Two-Level Atom (TLA) within a cross cavity configuration. This new geometry is a suitable tool to understand the origin of new QED features that the original JCM does not reveal, showing revivals in cases where they are not expected to appear.
