Abstract

We discuss some aspects of nuclear spin polarisation in helium three gas: laser optical pumping with various applications ranging from polarized targets for nuclear physics to the polarization liquid helium three; spin relaxation, in particular due to motion of the atoms in magnetic gradients or depolarization on the walls; finally, spin waves in polarized quantum gases at low temperatures, which can be detected in NMR experiments with detection coils mounted in opposition.
