Photon-atom interactions involving two transition channels can provide intriguing possiblities of creating non-classical fields,1,2 because of mixing of photons associated with different channels. The simplest one-channel atom-field interaction is described by the Jaynes-Cummings model.3 In this paper a two-channel extension of the Jaynes-Cummings model is discussed.
