Abstract
The purpose of the present work is to discuss the possibility of experimental determination of the collisional reorientation alignment and coherence effects involving magnetic sublevels in case of the j2=3/2 ← jl=½ transitions. The use of atomic crossed-beams allow one to control the initial velocity direction in scattering experiments. Moreover the use of polarized laser lights in pump and probe experimental set-up gives the additional information about orbital reorientation and alignment effects in the atomic collisional processes. We analyze the dependence of laboratory cross-section on the angular arrangement of the polarization directions of pump and probe laser beams. The quantum close-coupling calculations for Ca+ + He system is used to examine the possibility of experimental determination of the reorientation and alignment effects.
