We demonstrate here experimental 129 Xe polarisations of 80 %, approaching the theoretical limit of 86% predicted by our previous models, and which has been made possible by incorporation of a 50 W volume holographic grating laser diode array to a mid-pressure (2 bars) continuous-flow spin-exchange optical pumping 129 Xe polariser.
