Abstract : Two electron scattering experiments were performed with polarized Ho 165 nuclei. A measurement of the transmission of 8.3 MeV neutrons produced by the Van de Graaff generator was attempted. The change of transmission from polarized to unpolarized system is found to be less than a few per cent. The magnetization curve of Holmium was measured at 4.2K and fields up to 40KG.
