Sub-natural-width N-type resonance, observed in the D2 line of Cs vapor has been reported recently. Three-photon, bi-chromatic excitation of Cs atomic vapor with 20 Torr of Neon was performed and a sub-natural-width resonance was observed, superimposed on the absorption profile of a set of hyperfine transitions starting from single hyperfine ground level. Here we report the study of a different three-photon, couple-probe- excitation scheme that allows the observation of a sub-natural-width resonance situated on a flat background, well outside the D2 line absorption spectrum of Cs. The lack of a noisy background could be advantageous for many applications related to the narrow N resonance. In addition, a new broader feature of enhanced transparency is demonstrated that is centered at the ground state level that does not interacting with the coupling beam. This enhanced transparency resonance can be attributed to the atomic population loss in a narrow spectral interval occurring due to excitation of energy levels situated above the 6 2P levels.
