The problem of Interference Stabilization of Rydberg atoms is considered. Two kinds of Raman-type transitions can be responsible for the effect: Λ-type transitions via the continuum and V-type transitions via lower resonant atomic levels. The main distinctions between Λ- and V-stabilization are described. The conditions under which each of these two effects can exist are found and discussed.
