A setup has been constructed which implements the techniques of grazing surface scattering and of the tilted foil method to produce nuclear polarized beams at the Leuven Isotope Separator On Line (LISOL), which is connected to the cyclotron Cyclone at Louvain-la-Neuve. This development makes it possible to use the intense radioactive ion beams (RIB), which will be available soon in the framework of the RIB-project at Louvain-la-Neuve, for polarization experiments. Especially solid state studies using polarized probe nuclei are envisaged in the beginning. First experiments to test the setup have been carried out and the results are very promising. The specific features of the setup are discussed together with the results of the test experiments.
