Solid-State Polarized Targets for Nuclear Physics

Abstract: Nuclear physics experiments using a solid polarized target attempt to extract polarized observables with optimal precision. An introduction is given to the process of polarizing bulk materials specific to the requirements of fixed target scattering experiments. Some examples of the recent developments in the technology and techniques using DNP solid polarized targets are also presented.
