    The hyperfine anomaly gives an insight into the coupling of spin and orbital magnetic moments in the nucleus. More precisely, the nuclear magnetization is expressible through the nuclear wave functions with which is tested not only the magnetic moment operator, but also the tensor product [s×C2]1. The experiment can then be expected to be of value in testing the nuclear structure theory. The greatest value of these measurements is gained when these are made systematically over a large number of isotopes. We propose to initiate a program at ISOLDE to measure the hyperfine anomaly systematically in the heavy alkali elements. The experimental setup to achieve, in particular, a precise measurement of the nuclear g-factor is presented and the results on atomic beams of39K are discussed.
