Time‐continuous wavefunction collapse mechanisms not restricted to markovian approximation have been found only a few years ago, and have left many issues open. The results apply formally to the standard relativistic quantum‐electrodynamics. I present a generalized Schrödinger equation driven by a certain complex stochastic field. The equation reproduces the exact dynamics of the interacting fermions in QED. The state of the fermions appears to collapse continuously, due to their interaction with the photonic degrees of freedom. Even the formal study is instructive for the foundations of quantum mechanics and of field theory as well.
