We show that by treating the weak probe field as a perturbation to the strong coupling fields in the atomic system and using the perturbative method in a master equation, the features of linear response of phenomena of electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) can be uniformly demonstrated, regardless of the details of atomic energy level configuration. We compare our estimation with both typical and atypical EIT-observed configurations and find that our model indeed provides a description

It can also be inferred hereby that for various systems other than atomic gas, as long as the description of the system's dynamics comes down to the simplified form of master equation, the corresponding EIT analogs and EIT-like phenomena can also be explained in this way.
