Some experiments in optical pumping

Abstract:

The work reported in this thesis consists of an investigation into three aspects of optical pumping in Helium.

Optical pumping in He⁴

This work was initially directed towards repeating the observations of Colegrove and Franken (ref. 2), who first reported experiments to produce atomic alignment by optical pumping in He⁴. This was achieved, and the theory and experiments were extended to cover the case of polarisation.

The 2³S₁

term in He⁴ is metastable and is used ... Expand abstract
