Measurement of the Longitudinal Spin Diffusion Coefficient in Spin Polarized Atomic Hydrogen Academic Article uri icon


  • We report on the measurement of the longitudinal spin diffusion coefficient in doubly spin polarized atomic hydrogen. Measurements were made using pulsed nuclear magnetic resonance to probe the transport of magnetization between a sealed container and a large reservoir. Results are presented for densities between 1.41015 and 4.81016 cm-3 at temperatures between 246 and 470 mK in a magnetic field of 7.7 Tesla and are found to be in reasonable agreement with theoretical calculations by Lhuillier.
