We present a method for measuring nuclear-spin-dependent atomic parity violation without nuclear-spin-independent background. Such measurements can be achieved by observing interference of parity-conserving and parity-violating two-photon J=0-to-1 transitions driven by collinear photons of the same frequency in the presence of an external static magnetic field.

Parity violation in two-photon J=0-to-1 transitions: Analysis of systematic errors
We present an analysis of systematic sources of uncertainty in a recently proposed scheme for measurement of nuclear-spin-dependent atomic parity violation using two-photon J=0-to-1 transitions
Relations between matrix elements of different weak interactions and interpretation of the PNC and EDM measurements in atoms and molecules
The relations between matrix elements of different P- and T-odd weak interactions are derived. We demonstrate that similar relations hold for parity nonconserving (PNC) transition amplitudes and
