    A more complete review on the methods for producing polarized electrons is given by K. Jost and H.D.Zeman, now Physikalisches Institut, University of Münster, in their unpublished paper “Production of Polarized Electron Beams”. (Stanford HEPL 590,1971). I am very much indebted to this paper, particularly as far as the figures of merit are concerned.Google Scholar
