Abstract:

In this experimental investigation the polarization levels and relaxation rates for optically pumped 4He and 3He isotopes were determined. An experiment verified that simultaneous magnetic resonance of both isotopes in a common volume may be attained. Characteristics of some experimental semiconductor diode lasers were measured with a view toward replacing helium lamps as an optical pumping radiation source with diode lasers. A semiconductor diode laser was successfully used to monitor polarized 4He atoms. Author
