The Argonne laser-driven D target: Recent developments and progress

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The first direct measurements of nuclear tensor polarization p{sub zz} in a laser-driven polarized D target have been performed at Argonne. We present p{sub zz} and electron polarization P{sub e} data taken at a magnetic field of 600 G in the optical pumping cell. These results are highly indicative that spin-temperature equilibrium is achieved in the system. To prevent spin relaxation of D and K atoms as well as the molecular recombination of D atoms, the walls of the laser-driven D target are coated with organosilane compounds. We discuss a new coating technique, the {open_quotes}afterwash{close_quotes}, developed at Argonne which has ... continued below

We discuss a new coating technique, the {open_quotes}afterwash{close_quotes}, developed at Argonne which has yielded stable atomic fraction results when the coating is exposed to K. We also present new coating techniques for glass and Cu substrates.
