Abstract:

ATOMIC BEAM SOURCE OF POLARIZED ELECTRONS 1 Large depolarization effect in potassium beam experiments Non-adiabatic transitions and collisions with gas molecules were proven not responsible for polarization observed after elimination of potassium molecules. The following effects were responsible insufficient energy discrimination in the Mott scattering apparatus and the overlap by the strong line of the high-pressure mercury arc on the wavelength of the second resonance transition in potassium. 2 Higher intensity source of polarized electrons a pulsed light source and a lithium atomic beam were selected for improving the source of polarized electrons. 3 A high-pressure-spark light source was built as a source of polarized electrons. MAGNETIC RESONANCE Precision measurement was made of the ratio of the nuclear magnetic moment of He-3 to that of the proton W. C. Williams and V. W. Hughes, Bull. Am. Phys. Soc., 11121 1966.
