Abstract

The paper contains a general review of developments in nuclear physics which have resulted from the application of optical methods to the study of nuclei. It also touches upon some related developments which have resulted from applications of atomic beams which have been stimulated by the early spectroscopic ideas as well as by the results of spectroscopic research. Some items under consideration are: coupling of electron system to nuclear spin, the electron-nuclear volume and shape effect, the hyperfine structure of the isotopes of hydrogen, distribution of nuclear magnetic, isotope shift and quadrupole moments, bearing of latter on nuclear models.
