Abstract
Lasers have played an important role for the development of new spectroscopy techniques yielding spins, electromagnetic moments and charge radii of many unstable nuclei. More recently, similar techniques have been introduced to manipulate atoms and thus to prepare beams or samples of radioactive atoms for various applications including nuclear spectroscopy and decay studies.
