ABSTRACT
An experiment on the observation of spin polarization of metastable helium atoms interacting with optically oriented sodium atoms under continuous rf discharge conditions is described. Laser radiation with alternating-sign circular polarization, tuned to the resonance excitation of the 3[sup 2]S[sub 1/2]–3[sup 2]P[sub 1/2] transition in Na atoms, is used as the source for optical pumping of ground-state sodium atoms. © 1997 American Institute of Physics.
