Physics highlights from laser spectroscopy at the IGISOL

Abstract

Laser spectroscopy provides model-independent access to a variety of radioactive nuclear ground state and isomeric state properties. These include the nuclear moments, changes in mean-square charge radii, and direct measurements of the nuclear spin. At the IGISOL laboratory, the collinear laser spectroscopy programme is able to access cases, such as refractory elements and short-lived states, not available at conventional facilities. A summary of physics highlights is presented here.
