An experimentally feasible scheme of a four-level atomic system driven by two microwaves and one optical field is suggested in order to realize destructive and constructive quantum interference between the two microwave-driven transition pathways and hence to coherently manipulate the applied optical field. The destructive quantum interference can be switched to the constructive interference and vice versa if one tunes the intensity ratio of the two microwaves. Such an effect of tunable optical response based on microwave quantum interference may have some potential applications to the technique for designing new photonic and quantum optical devices, e. g., photonic logic gates, optical switches, and photonic transistors.
