We present a conceptual design for a polarized $^3$He target for Jefferson Lab's CLAS12 spectrometer in its standard configuration. This two-cell target will take advantage of advancements in optical pumping techniques at high magnetic field to create 60\% longitudinally polarized $^3$He gas in a pumping cell inside the CLAS12 5 T solenoid. By transferring this gas to a 20 cm long, 5 K target cell, a target thickness of $3 \times 10^{21}$ $^3$He/cm$^2$ will be produced, reaching the detector's… Expand

The theory predicts that at low He pressures applying a magnetic field significantly reduces the /sup 3/He depolarization rate due to formation of /sup3/He/sub 2//sup +/ and at high He pressures the relaxation rate decreases with pressure. Expand
