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.
