Abstract: The solar photosphere is the layer in which the magnetic field has been most reliably and most often measured. Zeeman- and Hanle-effect based probes have revealed many details of a rich variety of structures and dynamic processes, but the number of open and debated questions has remained large. The magnetic field in the quiet Sun has maintained a particularly large number of secrets and has been a topic of a particularly lively debate as new observations and analysis techniques have revealed new and often unexpected aspects of its organization, physical structure and origin.
