Abstract

Light forces acting on radioactive atoms confine them in cold samples of large phase space density. We describe the processes of radioactive atom production, reduction of their velocity, and capture. The trapped atoms form excellent sources for the study of atomic parity non-conservation, β decay and α decay asymmetries, and other weak interactions.
