Abstract: The theory of radiative transfer for polarized radiation, developed from Quantum Electrodynamics for the interpretation of solar observations, predicts the existence of a variety of physical phenomena that, in many cases, would deserve being directly tested through laboratory experiments, also in view of possible practical applications. In this report we will focus on the description of some of these atomic-physics phenomena that have been disregarded, or overlooked, in terrestrial laboratories.
