Charge radii of high-spin isomers measured using laser spectroscopy methods

The overview of experimental data on charge radii differences between the ground and the high-spin isomeric states is presented. Methods of high-resolution laser spectroscopy were used for measurements. Charge radii differences obtained in two ways are compared: from measurements of isomeric shifts of atomic levels of nuclei under study and from measurements of quadrupole moments in both states under the assumption that the radii differences are determined by the difference of their quadrupole deformations. Isomers formed at a rupture of one or several nucleon pairs and isomers with the configuration of the odd neutron 1h 11/2 for the nuclear region Cd-Ba and 1i 13/2 for the region Hg-Pb are considered. Observed deviations of the above charge radii differences for isomeric states of a different nature are discussed.
