Abstract: One of the most useful diagnostic tools for the detection of inclined magnetic fields in solar chromospheric and coronal structures is that based on the fact that the Hanle effect in forward scattering at the solar disk center creates linear polarization in some spectral lines, such as those of the He I 10830 Å multiplet. Here we show the preliminary results of an ongoing investigation on the magnetic field of a solar filament, based on the inversion of spectropolarimetric observations obtained with the Tenerife Infrared Polarimeter.
