We study the controlled photon emission of generic V-type three-level molecules (e.g. BaF) via a radio frequency field. The density matrix approach was employed to calculate the probabilities of emission of one or two X-polarised photons. The influence of the relative delay phase between the sequential pulse on the emission photon probabilities can be enhanced or eliminated by the polarisation of the radio frequency field. For θ ∈ [ 0.35π,0.75π ] + nπ, the influence of the relative delay phase is enhanced, whereas for θ ∉ [ 0.35π,0.75π ] + nπ the influence is suppressed. The probabilities of emitting one or two X-polarised photons oscillate with the modulation index ζ, and several zero points exist, which could be used as a trigger for photon emissions. The results also demonstrated the phenomenon of radio frequency field-assisted photon absorption.
