Hyperfine Interactions in Atoms, Molecule Ions and Other Simple Systems Beam Foil Polarization Techniques for Nuclear Studies


The interaction of fast ions with solid surfaces at grazing incidence yields a large anisotropy in the spatial distribution of the orbital angular momenta of atoms and ions. This anisotropy is partially transferred via hyperfine interaction to the nuclear spin system so that high-resolution atomic spectroscopy and the polarization of nuclear spins are feasible.
