Abstract
The kinetics of atoms with the degenerated excited and ground states in an elliptically polarized wave is considered. In the simplest case of the 1/2 yields 1/2 transition it is shown that all kinetic coefficients essentially depend on the light ellipticity. In particular, in the low-saturation limit the friction force contains, apart from the well-known Doppler friction, a term that arises from a transition between adiabatic potentials and can be interpreted as the Sisyphus friction.
