The next generation experiments to measure the neutron EDM are being proposed at the Los Alamos National Lab. The use of spin polarized 3He is a critical component of the experiment. Thus measuring the relaxation times of polarized 3He under the actual conditions of the neutron EDM is a crucial step in the success of the experiment. This paper talks about the effort underway at Duke University to measure the relaxation time of polarized 3He at cryogenic temperatures. The applications available in LabView and ExpressPCB have been used extensively in these efforts.
