"This Thesis is intended to be a self-contained guide to the theory and experimental procedures of optical pumping in one of its most usual applications. A particular study is made of optical pumping of rubidium vapor and results are given stating the most efficient temperature range in which to produce large populations of optically oriented rubidium atoms. The thermal relaxation time for optically orientated rubidium for a particular system is given and the effect of trapped resonance radiation is considered in the interpretation of the experimentally obtained curves"--Abstract, p. ii
