Title: First Measurement of the Nuclear Carge Radii of Short-Lived Lithium Isotopes

Abstract

A novel method for the determination of nuclear charge radii of lithium isotopes is presented. Precise laser spectroscopic measurements of the isotope shift in the lithium 2s? 3s transition are combined with highly accurate atomic physics calculation of the mass dependent isotope shift to extract the charge-distribution-sensitive information. This approach has been used to determine the charge radii of 6,7,8,9Li.
