We have calculated the spectral functions for a number of induced excitations near the sum-frequency generation of a bichromatic field interacting with a three-level atom in the cascade configuration. Although the two-photon spontaneous emission is electric dipole forbidden, there are induced peaks whose subnatural line widths and spectral heights depend on the intensities of the bichromatic field. At low intensities of both laser fields, the maximum heights of the induced peaks take positive, zero, and negative values, indicating that the physical processes of absorption (attenuation), dark resonance (nonabsorbing state), and stimulated emission (amplification) are likely to occur at the sum-frequency generation of the two laser fields, respectively. The derived results are graphically presented and discussed.
