    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    We investigate the possibility of using the techniques of dynamic nuclear polarization on liquid3He. We calculate the polarization rate resulting from the saturation of the electron spin resonance in a substrate immersed in the liquid. For metallic substrates, the rate will be too slow to overcome relaxation at the walls of the container. For insulating substrates, liquid polarizations enhanced by a factor μBN≈103 can be achieved on the order of seconds.
