We established a master equation for a system of fermions coupled by electric dipol interaction with the free electromagnetic field. This equation has a Lindblad equation form, with a hamiltonian part corresponding to the shell model and a dissipative part with microscopic coefficients depending on physical constants, matrix elements, and temperature. The dependence on the transition energy of the dissipative coefficients satisfies asymptothycal conditions for the energy transfer in full agreement with the principle of the detailed balance.
