Abstract

Polarized targets have been used with increasing sophistication in a considerable number of experiments during the past two decades. In this paper methods to polarize nuclear targets are briefly discussed together with some developments in materials and techniques. Applications in quite different fields will be reviewed on the basis of some selected experiments and proposals, ranging from small-angle neutron scattering to experiments which should reveal the spin-structure of the proton and neutron. Experiments and proposals for basic symmetries (parity violation, time reversal and charge symmetry) are included as well.
