The alignment correlation term in the β-ray angular distribution from purely nuclear spin aligned 20F has been measured to test the G-parity conservation law which is one of the fundamental symmetries in the weak nucleon current. We utilized the hyperfine interaction of 20F in an MgF2 single crystal and successfully created the pure alignment from the polarization by means of the spin manipulation technique based on the β-NMR method.
