"UVA Solid State Polarized Target Program"

The UVA solid polarized target group has been a hub for scattering experiment
polarized target research for the last 30 years.  Solid state polarized targets provide
high polarization and high density for many types of fixed targets employed by nuclear
labs worldwide.  Dynamic nuclear polarization and other RF techniques are
used to enhance the polarization of the cryogenically cooled solid
material to improve the figure of merit of the experiment.  An overview of
the technology and techniques is given with an emphasis on recent
developments.  Some future experiments are discussed providing examples of
implementation of this research which make it possible to access many spin-dependent
degrees of freedom used to test fundamental prediction of QCD.
