A setup has been constructed which enables to produce nuclear polarized, mass separated beams at the Leuven Isotope Separator On Line (LISOL). First experiments demonstrate the existence of substantial atomic orientations, induced with both the tilted foil (TF) and the grazing surface scattering (GSS) technique. The results of the TF experiments being as good as optimal for our situation, the GSS results can still be enhanced. The setup could be used as a complementary method in material characterization studies and first experiments to use a polarized N-13 beam to determine site distributions of N implanted in Fe are being planned.
