VITO polarization line with end station for beta-detected NMR.

VITO (Versatile Ion polarisation Technique Online) is a permanent beamline at the ISOLDE facility devoted to a wide range of studies with laser-polarised radioactive beams. The setup for laser spin polarisation can be coupled to several end stations. These allow studies of the details of the weak force, properties of short-lived unstable nuclei, their role in nucleosynthesis, and even chemistry, biology, and material science.
