The magnetic moments of xenon atoms (129Xem and Xem131) have been measured with a high precision nuclear-magnetic-resonance method. The nuclei of gaseous xenon were polaried by spin exchange with optically pumped rubidium and the polariation was measured by gamma-ray anisotropy. The static magnetic field for the nuclear magnetic resonance experiment was stabilied and calibrated by optical pumping magnetometers. The measured magnetic moments are (129m)=0.891 223(4) N and (131>)=0.994 048(6) N.
