Abstract: The chromospheric magnetic field is an important and essential component for understanding solar atmospheric fields. Due to the problems of polarization radiation transfer in the chromosphere and the low detective sensitivity of chromospheric spectrum lines, observations of chromospheric magnetic fields are very difficult, so studies of chromospheric fields are infrequent. However, the understanding of chromospheric fields is evolving. In this report, we summarize our current empirical knowledge and basic physical understanding of chromospheric fields. We concentrate on the comparison of magnetic fields in the photosphere and chromosphere, and then display their difference.
