Calculations are presented which include exactly the effects of fringing fields on the electric-field-induced quantum beats of atomic hydrogen. The results explain some recently observed phaseshifts of the quantum beats relative to the predictions of the 'sudden approximation'. The general features produced by finite rise-time and overshoot are discussed.
