In the SNS experiment, polarized 3He is used to measure the neutron precession frequency as well as to serve as a co-magnetometer. The polarized 3He, from an atomic beam source, is injected into the system and then removed therefrom in each measurement cycle (using a ‘heat flush’ technique). I will discuss the current status of the system.
