There presented basic information on coherent population trapping (CPT) and related phenomenon of electromagnetically induced transparence, ‘dark’ and ‘bright’ (anomalous absorption) states is presented. Spectrum transformation is considered in probe field spectroscopy for Λ-scheme in various settings. The close relation is revealed between the effect of CPT in the manifold of magnetic sublevels and the phenomenon of optical pumping (optical orientation and optical alignment). CPT is shown to be generalized to the case of several transitions with a common upper level and with the corresponding number of light fields each being in quasiresonance with its ‘own’ transition.
