Abstract
Nuclear-polarized He targets have played an important role in electron-scattering experiments since the mid 1990’s. Critical to the success and expansion of this program has been the ability to produce large amounts of polarized He gas with relatively high polarization. This thesis describes research that has, by a convenient figure of merit, improved the performance by more than an order of magnitude. Note: Abstract extracted from PDF text
