Abstract

The low-energy collinear laser beam line at ISAC routinely produces highly nuclear-spin polarized beams of 8Li +  for depth-controlled studies of thin films and near-surface phenomena. It also is used for nuclear structure and fundamental symmetry studies requiring other beams of polarized lithium and sodium isotopes. Further development of polarized 20F and 11Be beams is described, the latter in some detail. Laser fluorescence spectroscopy at high sensitivity using unpolarized bunched beams is briefly mentioned.
