A study was conducted on a two-channel model of superradiance which accounts for the decoherence effects of spontaneous emission. The validity of an approximation used, which performed quantum trajectory simulations for the model in the regime where the collective and spontaneous emission channels compete was assessed. It was found that while their approximation retains the decoherence effect of spontaneous emission quantum jumps, it overlooks a second decoherence mechanism operating during the between-jump evolution.
