Abstract: Two phenomena can affect the transmission of a probe field through an absorbing medium in the presence of an additional field: electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) and Autler-Townes splitting (ATS). Being able to discriminate between the two is important for various practical applications. Here we present an experimental investigation into a method that allows for such a disambiguation as proposed by Anisimov, Dowling, and Sanders in Phys. Rev. Lett. 107, 163604 (2011). We apply the proposed test based on Akaike's information criterion to a coherently driven ensemble of cold cesium atoms and find a good agreement with theoretical predictions, therefore demonstrating the suitability of the method. Beyond the applicability of the test, our results demonstrate that the transition features are highly sensitive to the properties of the medium under study, potentially providing a practical characterizing tool for complex systems.
