We investigate electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) and Autler–Townes splitting (ATS) in a superconducting quantum circuit with a four-level V-type energy spectrum constructed by two coupled superconducting charge qubits. We show that it is possible for this four-level superconducting system to exhibit multiple dips in the absorption spectrum of a probe field, with at most three dips resulting from a combination of two ATS subsystems, which indicates the breakdown of the traditional correspondence between a \((N+1)\)-level system and \(N-1\) dips. It is also shown that the switching from EIT to ATS can be realized in a three-level ladder-type subsystem.
