We have developed the nuclear spin maser oscillating at a low frequency of 34 Hz with highly polarized nuclear spins of the noble gas element 129Xe. The system is advantageous for detecting a small frequency shift of the nuclear spin precession. We are thus planning to apply this system to the search for an atomic electric dipole moment of 129Xe. We here report the development of the system and its performance.
