Muonic atoms have been used to extract the most accurate nuclear charge radii
based on the detection of X-rays from the muonic cascades. Most stable and a few unstable
isotopes have been investigated with muonic atom spectroscopy techniques. A
new research project recently started at the Paul Scherrer Institut aims to extend the highresolution
muonic atom spectroscopy for the precise determination of nuclear charge radii
and other nuclear structure properties of radioactive isotopes. The challenge to combine
the high-energy muon beam with small quantity of stopping mass is being addressed by
developing the concept of stopping the muon in a high-density, a high-pressure hydrogen
cell and subsequent transfer of the muon to the element of interest. Status and perspectives
of the project will be presented.
