Abstract : The paper is concerned with a system of nuclear spins in coupling with electron spins in a solid, and the possibility of appreciably polarizing the nuclear spins through excitation of the magnetic resonances of the system. This is an example of a dynamic polarization method in which the nuclei are polarized directly by inducing certain forbidden microwave transitions. Applications to polarized proton targets are discussed.
