The Raman coupling between two internal states of a trapped low-density quantum-degenerate Fermi gas was discussed. It was found that under appropriate conditions, the two-body collisions suppressed the dephasing leading to collapse of population difference and restoration of almost full Rabi oscillations between the two internal states. The analysis showed that the collisions changed the fermionic dynamics in a non-trivial fashion.
