Speaker: Dr Natalia Oreshkina
Affiliation: Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, Heidelberg


In this talk, I will concentrate on the main limiting factors for many high-precision experiments, namely, the nuclear radii. We will overview the current methods, their advantages, and disadvantages. Also, I'll introduce the highly charged ions and the muonic atoms with their special properties. I will present the main limitations of theoretical predictions and discuss whether or not they can be overcome. Finally, I will show how atomic structure studies can provide access to other nuclear parameters, to the fundamental constants, and even to the physics beyond the Standard Model.
