A rotation of the angular correlation of deexcitation rays from Ca40 and Ca44 was observed in a tilted foil geometry. The signs and magnitudes of the magnetic moments of the 21+ level of Ca44 and of the 31- level of Ca40 were determined to be g=-0.28 0.11 and g=+0.52 0.18, respectively. The experiment demonstrates that polarization of deeply bound electronic configurations can be appreciable and that this technique can be used as a quantitative measure of magnetic moments of picosecond nuclear levels.
