Title: Towards measuring the charge radius of {sup 6}He and {sup 8}He.

Towards measuring the charge radius of {sup 6}He and {sup 8}He. We report on the progress towards measuring the charge radius of {sup 6}He and {sup 8}He nuclei by performing laser spectroscopy on these helium atoms in a magneto optical trap (MOT). First tests to produce neutral {sup 6}He atoms via the {sup 12}C({sup 7}Li, {sup 6}He){sup 13}N reaction at the ATLAS accelerator have been successfully conducted. The MOT apparatus including the laser system and the discharge source to populate the metastable level are currently being set up.
