Paper Abstract

The exact steady-state solution of the optical Bloch equations for the density matrix of atoms interacting with a monochromatic field is found in a compact analytical form for closed Fg equals F yields Fe equals F + 1 transitions. The obtained solution is valid for arbitrary light ellipticity and intensity. Some applications of this new result are outlined.
