We examine coherent effects in a four-level Vee scheme. We show that the system can be made to display a number of different phenomena, including the inhibition of two-photon absorption and the production of multiple dark states. We show that this latter effect is due to the independent control of the Autler-Townes splitting of the upper and lower probe field by independent driving fields. We suggest possible experimental systems in rubidium for the observation of such effects.
