We have observed narrow nuclear magnetic resonances in polarized Ne19 stored for several seconds in a Formvar cell. The nuclear polarization is monitored by observing the β-decay asymmetry while the atoms are subjected to an rf driving field. Due to the long observation times and motional averaging, narrow resonance widths are observed. Using this technique we find μ(Ne19)=-1.885 42(8)μN. Possible application to other radioactive noble gas isotopes is discussed. NUCLEAR STRUCTURE Ne19; measured μ. Observed motional averaging. Magnetic field stabilizer.
