Abstract
In the present paper we fully analytically solve the problem on optical pumping of atoms by a monochromatic elliptically polarized radiation with taking into account the radiative relaxation of the excited state. It is shown that all dipole- allowed transitions can be divided into four classes with respect to the steady-state solution structure and its physical manifestations. Possible applications of the obtained solution are discussed.
