An atomic beam source (ABS) which will provide an internal polarized H or D target at the IUCF Cooler ring has been developed at the University of Wisconsin. The aim of the development was not only to achieve a large atomic beam intensity, but to produce a beam that can be injected with high transport efficiency into a long, narrow tube. The source was designed to inject the atomic beam into a storage cell through a 10mm diameter, 13cm long cylindrical tube placed 26cm from the last ABS sixpole magnet.
