Abstract We use a recent stochastical diffusion model of quantum evolution to represent the evolution of a three-level quantum system undergoing quantum jumps. This is possible because the continuous change in the quantum state in this diffusion model is so rapid that it appears to be instantaneous in comparison with the time between transitions. Experimental data from a study of the intermittent fluorescence of a single trapped 24Mg+ ion and equivalent theoretical data are shown to be strikingly similar. Statistical comparisons of the data are also made.
