Abstract
The constructive and destructive nature of the interference for the spontaneous emission from a three-level atom have been discussed by using dressed states. There is an interference if the upper level of the spontaneous emission is driven by a coherent field, while there is no interference if the lower level of the spontaneous emission is driven by the field. What interference (constructive or destructive one) we will get at a fixed frequency depends on the initial condition of the atom.
