Utilizing cold and trapped atoms for precision spectroscopy of weak atomic transitions has two important advantages: the suppression of Doppler and time-of-flight broadenings and a combination of long interaction times, weak perturbations and tight confinement, which can be obtained using dark optical traps.1,2
