Abstract We analyze the fluorescence spectrum of a two-level atom driven by two laser fields of different frequencies and amplitudes: a strong field on resonance with the atomic transition and a weaker field detuned by the Rabi frequency of the strong laser and its subharmonics. We show that the spectra differ significantly from the Mellow triplet of the monochromatic driving field and are composed of triplets located at harmonics as well as subharmonics of the Rabi frequency of the strong field. We find that the multipeak structure of the spectrum results from the splitting by the weaker field of the energy levels created by the strong field. The splitting appears whenever the weaker field couples to the levels in an n-photon process. In addition to the splitting of the energy levels, we find that the weaker field also shifts the resonances, an effect we attribute to a dynamical Stark shift. When the weaker field is tuned to a shifted resonance, no fluorescence occurs at the atomic frequency. The results are obtained using the numerical continued fraction method and explained in terms of the doubly dressed model.
